Great for hikers

If you like to hike in the back country this is an excellent park. It is secluded and once you go through the gates expect to travel around 67 miles to reach the campsites. I lost all phone service about 23 before reaching the gates with Verizon. They have I drive up sites, walk in sites, and hike in. We stayed at a walk in. Prepare for 200~300 yard hike with your gear from the parkin g lot. The campsites although with a beautiful backdrop were in an open field area with little shade. Felt more like festival camping. Wou.d have loved to see more secluded, wooded campsites with more privacy. You are constantly looking into your neighbors site and they into yours..The hiking here is superb with many nice swim holes to take a dip in throughout the spring with multip.e waterfalls if you continue through and behind the first spring pool. Be sure to take the 3 mile hike to Gorman falls as well for a 70 ft beauty. We seen lots of wildlife in this park. Beware although rare to see Mt. Lions do roam the terrain... Great park to visit just not the camping we expected. Although the hike,swim, and falls made up for it.. Overall recommended but do your research. This site is remote so be sure to bring everything you will need.. cash or checks only for firewood btw..
