The area in which the campground is located is absolutely beautiful. Huge pine trees and quaking aspens complement the tranquil sound of Holy Ghost creek. Camp spaces are often full. Dogs must be on leash. Plenty of people driving in looking for spaces are forced to turn around at the dead end. Good for car camping due to accessibility. Tent camping at the end of the site offers a little bit more seclusion.
