  • This is a very nice park to camp at. The sites are very private, well maintained and quiet. Bathrooms are clean. Showers work on quarters, but water is hot. Wood and ice for sale. Would definitely stay here again.

The showers are hot and give you control of the temperature, and 50ยข is reasonable for five minutes. We could hear the traffic on 100 from our site at times, but not enough volume to be annoying. And the Ranger was quite helpful with hiking recommendations, of which there are plenty!
