My family and I camped here a few weekends ago. We had a wonderful time! I haven't camped since I was a young teen and had a horrible experience. This place changed my previous opinions of camping!
The bathrooms were not only clean, but stocked with toilet paper! The showers always had warm water and are in separate rooms. Close campers and ranger were very friendly to us. The town is not a far walk at all from this site.
There are a few drawbacks - 1) we are not heavily interested in the arts, so the galleries were not too appealing. 2) I am a big shopper expecting Lake Arrowhead-like shopping, but to no avail. 3) No places for swimming or lakes. A lake showed up on our GPS, but we could not get to it.
Overall, we loved the small-town atmosphere and plan to return for more happy camping memories!
Check out the excellent Mexican food at Arribas too - very yummy!
