Easy access

Nice little (and free) campground right off of the highway. Sites were mostly level. There are 2 loops, one which is right next to the road, and the other away a bit. Vault toilets. No trash pickup. No water.

Great spot for weekend getaway

My pup and I had a good time here (aside from a sudden thunderstorm). There is no water sources and only vault toilets. The camping sites are well spread out and there is enough room to pull in a rig and park.
