These sites are beautiful - especial #9! It pokes out over the mountains and has the most unbelievable view! The hiking is great around here and there are lots of trails to explore. Hike up to the watch tower and check out all the hummingbirds!

This is basically just sites along a road up to a fire lookout. There are 9 sites in total. Rangers do come by and take down information of the leader of the group. They are very strict on parties are not allowed. NO FIRES. They have had issues with drug use and parties so thats why they are strict. Almost every site is secluded so there is privacy beside the occasional car driving by.
There are only 9 sites stretched across 5 miles so you will have no neighbors. Each site is decent size and tucked away into the rocks. Many will fit multiple people easily. They fill up fast may-sept. The Exploration trail weaves around them up to the peak and makes a great hike and there are tons of climbing spots. The Children's forest and Keller peak fire lookout are at the top giving you great info and great views. There are fire rings but fires are not always permitted so be sure to check with the station just at the bottom of Keller Peak road.
