  • Love this place. Come every time when there’s meteor shower. Be sure to check weather and cloud coverage before heading out
  • I scouted this out for a future deep sky astrophotography session. Sits atop a hill with open sky all around. Easy access with lots of room and level ground. Short distance to haul equipment. Area isolated from parking area with wall to block light. No power access, though likely able to string a very long extension cable if needed to car with converter. Recommend bringing battery powered rig. Bortle 3 level site. Open 24 hours a day, but no camping (sleeping) allowed. Pets allowed in limited areas, though I would discourage that as could cause stress for people with expensive telescopes. Great area to spend a weekend in a local cabin to hike during the day and do astronomy at this park or in cabin back yard during the night.
