Has showers, bathrooms and camp sites 32-33 in loop B have incredible view of the high dessert. Definitely high country with winds blowing all day but by sundown the wind had died down enough for a fire and the sunset was freaking amazing! I’ll definitely go back but will be watching the wind conditions.
This was a really nice campground. They had two loops, loop A was mostly for RVs with hookups and loop B had standard sites (we stayed in this loop). The campground was very clean, really nice bathrooms and showers minus the fact that the showers get locked at 9pm so you have to plan ahead and hope everyone else isn’t using the showers when you go. The main inconvenience (and reason i only gave 4 stars) the sprinklers! I assume they are trying to grow grass but loop B had an abundance of sprinklers going non stop. We were able to find a site out of the path of the sprinklers but most were getting soaked! You also had to dodge them when going to the bathhouse, even walking on the road you had to go out of your way to avoid them. I’m sure this isn’t a long term thing but I did see where one person covered their picnic area with plastic. It’s an inconvenience but the campground itself is really nice! We arrived later and there was a self pay station at the host site on loop A. We stayed one night in a standard site for $20. The hookup sites were a little bit more but I think it was still under $30. Clean water and dump station nearby (unsure if there was a fee for the dump station)
Take the boat out, the side by sides and anything else you can think of
