Absolutely breathtaking views with a long, beautiful dirt road in to the campsite. The campground is rural but perfectly well equipped with vault toilets (which needed tending to when we were there TBH), rock fire rings and picnic tables. We were looking forward to exploring this gorgeous area, but Mother Nature had other plans for us. We were able to easily find a private site and set up camp and have a peaceful evening under the stars, looking forward to our hike in the morning. We went to sleep all happy and cozy. We woke up to the craziest wind storm around 1am!!! Our tent took quite a beating, we are estimating that winds were above 50mph!!! Needless to say, we were exhausted in the morning and packed up promptly and promised ourselves we would return!
There is a bathroom, no water. Lots of space between campsites. $5 per campsite. Fire pit area. A pretty swampy area but so beautiful at the base of the mountain with the Twin Lakes trailhead right across from the campground.
Nestled at the base of the soaring peaks of the Crazy Mountain Range, Halfmoon Campground feels truly magical. The dozen campsites are spread amongst the tall pine forest; each accommodated with a picnic table, fire ring and ample flat spaces for tents. There is also a toilet facility and minimal cellular service.
The scenery surrounding the campground is breathtaking: sharp peaks that rise upwards of 7,000 ft in elevation, crystal clear mountain streams rushing down the mountain sides, waterfall after waterfall, and two mountain lakes at the top of the 6 mile trail. Halfmoon Campground, I will be back! Also, it is a no-fee camping area.

Great campsites on a loop with a bit of a space in between, nice hiking trails to waterfalls! The road in is a bit rough the last few miles so larger campers might have problems. Excellent for a day adventure!
