Amazing Views

Even with the effect of the drought this campsite is still beautiful. No facilities except fresh water fountains and vault toilets sparsely located. Very quiet during the week, weekends busy but respectful. Road into camp is paved but curvy.

Good Campground

I've camped at this campground twice now; once in August of 2020 and once in July of 2021. Both times the experience has been good. The campsite has potable water and vault toilets. Before my two visits, I reserved my sites on recreation.gov. This made the experience hassle-free.

A boat ramp is located nearby on the eastern shoreline. Horseback riding, bouldering, hiking and mountain biking are popular in the area as well.
