Good camping spot.

This is a free campground so I tried to rate it accordingly. First off it does not have water at this location. So you’ll need to bring your own. the next campground over (Star hope) has an old fashioned water pump where we always fill up our water coolers. The camp has a vault toilet, camp tables, and fire pits. There is always plenty of wood around as the area isn’t very busy. There are also trees big enough to use for hammocks if you like that. There is a great trailhead hence the campground name which is a great day hike or backpacking trail. The high mountain lakes are beautiful and the fishing is fun. Overall I like the campground a lot.
