Good campsite

A bit tight quarters. Which made it challenging with loud rambunctious neighbors. Ours had a separate driveway to park our vehicle. Picnic table and fire pit were cleanest I have ever seen. Close to toilets and trail towards the visitor center. Nice to have a bear box for food placement.

Amazing Spot

This campsite was beautiful, with a light dusting of snow all around. The bear lockers were nice, and the fire ring was also very nice. I went during the off season (winter) so the only fee I had to pay was 30 dollars to get into the National Park. Otherwise, this campsite is about 20 bucks a night…
