First time

First time camping in this part of the state. Great campsites in the canyon. Very clean toilets. No campfires were allowed but still had a great time No luck fishing

Overrun by inconsiderate campers

I give this campground 2 stars - one because it is a lovely spot and two, because it is well-maintained considering its remoteness. The other 2-3 stars it may well have deserved were blacked out by the sheer numbers of outright rude and inconsiderate campers.

The drive into the canyon is, indeed,…

A Real Gem!

Great place to camp.  Hard to access in car.  Recommend high clearance truck, 4-wheel drive, or similar.

Contrary to current listing, there is NO POTABLE WATER and NO FIREWOOD in this campground.

There are some historical ruins here that are described on plaques.
