Nice tucked away campground

Nice national forest campground that seems well run, has sites with decent privacy and nice bathrooms.

Sites vary a lot in size and some are quite unlevel so luck of the draw on whether your rig can fit, but worth trying.

  • Site 42 is large but has a relatively small parking area
  • Site 42 is all by itself
  • Table and fire are up a small hill at site 42 but the parking area is quite level
