Nice views, great dispersed camping

I cannot stress this enough, get there early if going on a weekend! We arrived at 2:30 and got one of the last spots. Also, bug spray! Overall a great trip!

Love the space!

The campsites here are well spread out and right on the water. We found we had privacy and still had great hiking spots near by. May need a car that has AWD if you’re going up the hill to more dispersed spots as we had difficult in our smaller car. It was one of our favorites!
