We took a 3 hour hike through the park today and it was a great time. It was a beautiful day so the sky, rocks and trees were incredible. The birds were out which made it even more interesting. Our docent guide was Dean and he is an expert on the history of the area. It was an easy hike... More

Great place to hike -- lots of side trails, ponds, streams running through, and wildlife -- we saw deer, quail and hawks.

My husband is a big time MASH fan. We took the beautiful 2.5 mile hike back the site of the outdoor MASH set. Make sure you watch the opening scenes of a MASH show before you go. You will recognize the scenery when you get there. My husband thought this was AWESOME!!!!!

This is a great place to go for the advanced or beginner camper. They have full bathrooms and showers. They are VERY clean ! Great hiking trails. You must hike to the MASH site. My kids are 8 years old and had no problem doing it and they loved it

This a wonderful stroll, but bring lots of liquid and sun screen for that nutty sun. Parking is over $10 but well worth it to hike right along where Planet of the Apes was filmed along with other movies including a weird 1970s kids TV show called Arc2. The rock pools are a big hangout for teens cliff jumping and... More

We camp a lot and this place was just okay. The sites were well-used and I picked up garbage previous campers had left. No grass, just dirt. There were flush toilets, showers and kitchen sinks to use....but the staff were cleaning the facilities starting at 6:00 in the morning, the busiest time for utilizing these places! Despite a burning ban,... More

This place was horrible. Rude host. Totally clueless ranger staff at kiosk. They have is no trail maps, area guides, or even knew about the swimming hole the website talked about. The swimming hole seems to be spring fed, but is full of bad bacteria...or so the camper with the rash informed us. We wanted to see the MASH tour,... More

the rock pool can get crowded but it's worth it, especially if you're going to be jumping off rocks into the water. so much fun. everyone is very nice and friendly as well. the MASH site is here which is a nice, easy hike. but so far, the rock pool is my favorite thing here.
