Lovely views in the mountain meadow area. River side is very cramped. Our motorhome door opened less than three feet from neighbors sewer. We moved up hill. Bath Houses were not cleaned on a regular basis and they need updating. Laundry area needs to be swept out. The lint behind the dryers is several inches deep. They have an ongoing battle with the road ruts and excessive raining. They worked hard to smooth things out. Pavillion was only open on Friday and Saturdays. I found the people very friendly and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground has the worst access roads imaginable - narrow, steep, and incredibly rutted. Other than that it is an attractive campground spread out along a stream with the sites located in clusters so it doesn't feel crowded. There are several different levels because of the hilly topography. Usual amenities. The Wi-Fi signal does not work well but that seems to be the norm at campgrounds. Great campground for dogs with ample room for walking, running and playing. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We would not stay here again in a big rig. Narrow, badly rutted gravel roads with very tight turns. Had quite a hard time getting into our "pull through" site. Have never encountered such indifferent office staff. No one led us to site and it was hard to find. That said, our view was gorgeous once we got settled. Right next to big open area in the middle of the campground, surrounded by lovely mountains. In a smaller rig the setting might make it worth the trouble. We camped here in a Motorhome.
