Good for one night

Agree with the previous reviews. We stayed with our van and the space was ok, although tricky to find a flat surface. Fees still as shown in the previous pictures.

Not for RVs unless you like backing up from the main road.

Agree with Dexter. Pretty setting, creek running nearby. Can do fair amount of walking since railroad is no longer used. But constant traffic noise from I-15 can be a real drawback unless one is deaf.

SiteThere is only one camp site would be crowed with more than one camper.
