We loved this river spot even though we were next to one of the smaller parts rather than the main river. If you can try and get one near the main river as it is more picturesque.
Facilities were clean and well looked after. We had a nice time here.
Short walk into town - couldn't find decent shortcut that wasn't for mountain goats so perhaps just walk along the road to the town. The brewery was a good night out.
Not a bad campsite but no shelter. We had really strong winds that came down the wash and lots of trouble getting our tent to stay in one place. Ground wasn't conducive to tent pegs so sandbags covered in rocks worked but it was way too windy for us.
RV with us was ok. 25ft 2WD and it made it in far enough to have passed about 5 campsites. There are more but the road turns to high clearance neeed after about 2 or 3 miles.
Camping after 1st mile allowed. I don't think campfires are allowed.
We got a 25ft RV in hear albiet with some pin stripping. about 5 options along the trail nestled into the lava fields that provide some shelter from the wind. Beautiful spot. No facilities but some makeshift fire pits at most of the campsites.
2WD sedan ok as long as you stay on the trails - soft sand off trail.
We had a lovely stay for two nights, the wind was quite strong so make sure you have good pegs and sandbags. Plenty of spots to choose from without driving too far from the road. It wasn't too busy on the MLK long weekend with enough space and privacy between campers. Wide open spaces with some fire places made from rocks. A few spots had some shade trees but not many.
We had a few different campers within 50 yards and saw 3 of them get bogged in 3 different spots - two were proper 4WD's and one took two tow trucks to get it out so beware and scope out your drive off the main trail first.
We are novice campers - didn't have sand tent pegs so with a little wind on the day we arrived it took some time to find the right site for us which really was only after the wind died down after 4pm. Picture a few frustrated moments here while wind picked up tent and wife….. :)
Lesson learned, take sand capable tent pegs and set up site later in the day and not on a nice hill.
Once the wind died down we found a site and settled in for a lovely night.
Awesome caves and walking around the area. Spectacular must do trip when around the area.
