Super fun. It’s very remote. All the roads are dirt roads. If you want a quiet place to get away and not see anyone the entire time, go here.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. We had the campground completely to ourselves and it is an absolutely beautiful park. Lots of options for photography between big dark star filled night skies to beautiful sunsets. Nice hikes and we even got to the interior of the park and did some rugged driving! If you are looking to get away from technology and be close to nature this is the place to go!
