Pretty good

We got here Sunset on a Sunday night and stayed down by the gully. Just one night in an effort to see the whole park. Nice big sites but wide open so no privacy. Nice, clean bathrooms with flush toilets and the dishwashing station is nice to have access to.

Great stargazing!

Great for star gazing

We camped a little off of the main lot in the sandy area. There was great visibility for star gazing. Only downside is that everyone is at this site so it isn’t super quiet and you don’t have that much privacy. Nice bathrooms though

Very Windy Stopover

Came in on Friday at 3pm and got the last space available. Very windy for most of the afternoon and didn’t calm down till night fall. Had to use my vehicles a wind block so set up my tent. Good host on site and decent restrooms. Travelled in April so it was still close to freezing at night. Not much between sites so not much privacy. On one of the trails from the site a rattlesnake was spotted.
