  • Great place to Boondock. Nice sites, trail access. No running water or power at sites but dumpster is available once you are leaving. Beautiful spot.
  • Wasn't really here to camp, I just got tired of driving and pulled in to take a nap. Woke up to beautiful scenery. Very nice. I didn't stay, so I'm sorry, but I don't have any details on the park to share other than the beautiful view and that no one bothered me while I was sleeping.
