I'd recommend a vehicle with decent ground clearance since you have to cross a creek and some medium sized rocks to get there, but it's totally worth it. There's a fire pit, picnic table, outdoor grill, and latrines. I've camped there both in groups and solo. It's secluded in the National Forest, but still really close to civilization.
