Nestled in the woods

Great small campground with 9 sites and vault toilets up the mountain nestled by a stream. Quiet and relaxing!

A nice little campsite

I’d rate this campsite 3.5 stars if I could. It has a lot going for it. The roads are paved up to the last mile, which turns to a well maintained gravel road, so no need for an off roading vehicle. Look out for potholes though—the paved roads were sprinkled with large ones that come out of nowhere.…
