Great campground for summer. The lake is beautiful and cool. Large boat access area. There is a nice trail through the area, day use and overnight spaces. A little camp store with the basics. Not a lot of shade so make sure to bring sunscreen. Keep an eye out for snakes on the trail. The road is…
Campsites next to the water allow for tranquil nights
Two other campers in the entire campground!
A little over-priced but super cute and fairly dispersed.
Pull up next to the lake. Electric, wood, toilets, noisy boat docking, gnats available. Office super friendly and helpful. Fishing near dam close by.
July 20-23, 2019 Will not return. Sites 002 and 021 Electric and water available. Dump station out of order. Flush toilets. In order to use cellular, we had to boost. Dirt roads - windy and dusty. We were packed in like sardines.

There is a toilet and that's about it. Everything is overgrown. I would not come back here.
About 10-15min drive off of the highway. Last half is gravel. Three hiking trails nearby. Clean long drop toilet. Cold water. $15.00 per night. No power. Big level lots for trailers. The trailhead gets busy with hikers and horse trailers.

Lots of hiking opportunities at the campground, The campground sits across the road from a small "lake" which is good for kayaking and fishing. There are some sunny sites but mostly shady. We stayed on site #3 for 3 nights. All the sites are spacious. There is a hand pump for water and a vaulted…
Quigley Group Use Area use to be called McDonald Pass Group Use Area, and the names can be confusing as the old entrance still has a sign saying“McDonald Pass Group Use Area” The new and current entrance list the area as Quigley Group Use Area. What ever name you call it, this is a primitive group…

Great little campground! Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring. Overall there are two toilets and one water pump to share. The lake is small but fishing for trout was exciting with catches often! We used dry fly and luer. We were able to walk all the way around the lake on a dirt trail and…
