Peaceful Place

There was quite a few other campers here and we were pleasantly surprised how ‘private’ the camping sites are. Don’t get me wrong you can still hear your neighbors and see signs of life but you’re definitely not combat camping here!

Beautiful!

Tough hike in to the backpack site. But once we arrive we had a beautiful little lake all to ourselves. Didn't pass another person in the 1.5 mile hike in. Quiet, secluded, and relaxing. Site had some log benches and a table if I remember correctly as well as a bear box.

  • sunset on the private like my campsite was on
  • morning views from the private lake the site was on
  • not a very big lake but it was so serene to have this by the site

Beautiful wilderness experience

Heavily wooded campground, sites are a little close but acceptable.
