Nice, even during a summer storm.

nice simple campground with tables and vault toilets. The landscape is lovely with green rolling hills and splashes of Juniper trees. We had three bars for cell service which was great for the little bit of work we had to do. We plan to return when the skies are clear to enjoy what this site is…
