Great spot

This campsite felt like a little oasis after driving two days in the desert. The creek cools down the temperature a lot and the trees provide some relief from the scorching sun. There aren't very many sites, but they're fairly big and apart from each other.

Perfect spot

Not too far from town which is good. Campgrounds are right next to a creek so you can get your feet a little wet. Each campsite is very large.

Good camping location, minus the sticky stuff!

This camping area was easy to get to in a small car, seemed well kept, and overall was a good place for an overnight camping trip. 

EXCEPT the sticky stuff on the ground from the trees. It matted up on my dogs paws and all over their fur, it does not come out with soap and water hardly and it…
