Primative but a great location

This campground really exceeded our expectations. Its a typical primitive site. No water, bring your own wood, and a pit toilet. The sites and toilet were in pretty good condition. We were there on Memorial Day.  2 of the 5 sites were occupied when we arrived at approx. 1130 am and the other 2 were taken by 1pm. They are doing some recovery work at the CG and have put areas and trail between sites off limits. If you stay here, take the time to do the red canyon trail. The trailhead is on the west side of the canyon and the hike is worth it. Exposed for the first mile or so but great views of the waterpocket fold. Once you get into the wash there are amazing rock features and colors up the canyon. This is also a great base to do the Upper and Lower Muley Twist trails, Halls Creek or the number of washes you can hike. All in all this CG was not a disappoint and its sits in some amazing country.
