Quiet Campground

This campground has an interesting set up. The sites large enough for our 24 ft Class C were gravel pullouts along the main road and one small loop. There is a separate loop for tents only.

The campground is FCFS, but didn’t seem to fill completely in mid September.

There are water spigots…

Lesser Known National Park Campground

Really liked the vibe of this campground.  First come, first serve, but plenty of sites available when we arrived mid day.  No hookups, but plenty of potable water spouts and clean bathrooms (no showers).  Great hikes and cave tours in the NP

No electricity

I checked on this campground for our stay and the campground told me there are no electric hookups.  The Dyrt website says there is.  FYI
