Small Area

There are only a couple spots where you can park next to your site. For others, unless you have a truck or a big 4WD vehicle, you have to park and walk up to a site. Bear boxes are provided but no bathrooms or water. It’s a dispersed campsite so it’s first come first serve. Very close proximity to other sites and depending on your neighbors, it can get loud at night. The water looks a little swampy and was not enticing to swim in it. The road to get to the site is VERY narrow and bumpy. We had a Toyota RAV4 and most other cars I saw were a type of SUV. I wouldn’t recommend a smaller car although it is doable. I did see a Subaru down there.
