Beautiful scenery and clean facility and sites are setup well with good privacy. Lake view is beautiful as long as the lake is up
This is a great camp area, however when we went the Lake was really low. It was still very nice for fishing and kayaking. The camp sites were really nice, some had steps down to the picnic tables, the RV pads were nice and level. The restroom facilities were very clean. Beautiful views of the Trinity Alps. This campground takes a while to drive to, but totally worth it.
