Stay there overnight very quiet and quite Pleasant. the drive up there was scary, but once we arrived it was worth it. Very peaceful and amazing views and definitely a great place to take the kids if necessary. But great if you want to just get away with your man and be alone

It took good 20 min uphill through winding and bumpy road to get to Boulder Basin. If you have a car, you can still make it but just make sure you drive slow and avoid big potholes.

I'm not sure what other reviewers are used to when it comes to campground facilities but this is pretty standard, and well maintained compared to some that I've been to locally. What is great about BB is that it's a good 25 minutes on a winding dirt road on the way in. If your car has low clearance you may... More

It's still a white nuckle 5.5 mile drive up a rutted road, takes almost an hour, better for a 4x4, but can be done in a car if you are very careful, I... More

we stayed at Boulder Basin Campground. Great views and hiking but the worst bathrooms I have every experienced. The camp ranger did nothing to keep the noise down after hours either. Loud parties and music went on until after 3am.
