great spot

This is a basic free campground, with dispersed camping, no hookups and a vault toilet.  We were there in april and during the week at it to ourselves.  Is was rather full on the weekend but still quiet.  The hiking in the national forest was fabulous and this was a good base to get to hikes from.   There is a small store in Apache Creek about 5 minutes from the campground that sold water, ice, and other essentials.  Nice clean place to camp.

Nice and quiet. Plenty of hiking trails.

I arrived on a Sunday afternoon in mid May. There were a few campers, but less than half full. Temp was 69. Running water and pit toilets, very clean.

Fun weekend!

Campgrounds were well separated, well kept. Excellent stargazing available, as well as lots of hikes to pick from nearby! We ran into a thru-hiker doing the CDT when we were there last May (if you’re reading this, hi Pacer!)
