The campground itself is beautiful, nestled between trees and rock formations the sites are far enough for completely privacy and quiet. There are bathrooms and water and your picnic tables and fire pits. Trail heads for many amazing hikes of different levels start here so if you want an early start this is the place!
It’s unfortunate though that the NPS doesn’t do a better job at running the site and informing visitors about its availability. Rec.gov app says the camp is full without even first comes availability. At entrances to the park a big sign says the camp is full, sign near the camp says so as well. There is no camp host or anyone to ask. When I got there at 2pm “full” meant 3 open sites! Further more, some sites have multiple tent pads, this is mentioned anywhere which is a a shame since it could help with the limited open spaces.
All in all a beautiful, great located campground! Too bad the NPS doesn’t do it’s job efficiently enough for everyone to enjoy it.
Nice sites which are semi private because of the tree coverage which also adds a great smell to the area. You get you standard picnic tables, fire grates, tent pads, but this site has flush toilets. Also, water is available year-round but not at many other location within the park (make sure to plan ahead). First-come, first-served, but wasn't a problem since not alot of people seem to use this area. But you can reserve the group sites…
site: very private. semi-wooded. some shade. amenities: pit toilets and families with running water near. attractions: near great hiking. exceptional views. I drove through to check out the campground and then decide to stay here a couple nights.
