Our trip was a quick getaway for a birthday in April 2013. We arrived Friday late afternoon. The spots we wanted were already occupied and a section of the campsite was closed. But, after a few rounds and a few "discussions", we found a perfect spot. Site 65. It sits on a hill, but there are leveled out sections that were perfect for our tents. Lots of privacy since there is only one neighboring site. Our neighboring site, Site 64, was very spacious and had a beautiful view. Plenty of trees that provided plenty of shade during the day.
First come first serve. No showers, but they are a walk/drive away (though they were not open when we went). Fire pit, picnic bench, and bear box at each site. Fill up your tank before you drive in...gas is cheaper in the surrounding towns which is about an hour away. Campsite pay station dropbox takes cash only. Campsite is in the National Park, so there is an entrance fee of $20/car. The entrance ticket is valid for 7 days and must be shown upon exit.
We loved this campsite and will be coming back...
