Dry camping in Carr Canyon. Beautiful surroundings. True primative camping but extremely close to home!
Spent a weekend here helping Girl Scouts with outdoor skills.
LOVED this park and fantastic campground! I drove in for a long weekend with my 2 girls and we camped out in my minivan. This is a truly beautiful, magical and unique park. We spent 2 nights in a pull thru rv space nearbathrooms with showers! I told friends it was like camping in a desert botanical garden - we were surrounded by cacti and shrubs instead of another vehicle right on topof us.
I took my Girl Scout daughter and her bff-first time camper to spend the night at Colossal Cave MP last Saturday. Living about an hour away, called and was told plenty of sites available, to just come on up. Arrived to find the campgrounds in dire need of maintenance and roads in pretty cruddy condition. Was informed of no campfires after checking in. :( Went in search of a site to find tentsites doublebooked between Sierra Club and a Girl Scout troop! Serendipitously the girls invited us to share - being sisters to every scout! :) Group site was next to parking and pit toilets and had water, grills and cement picnic tables were all available there. Cost was DEFINITELY a plus here- $7.50 per night!
