I have been doing a lot of camping in the recent past and I have to admit that the lodgepole campground has been the best so far.
I booked my site from [--] and it gets filled up completely during summer. so make sure to book your sites in advance.
Iam not sure of the number of sites in this campground but I know that there 4 sites which are right next to the beautiful creek. they are the best ones to choose.
The sites are pretty well spaced out which gives you your privacy.
The site comes with a fire ring, stone benches around it to relax, table- bench and bear container.
You may not be able to park your cars within your campsite. However, the parking lot is not more than 25 feet. Each campsite gets an assigned parking area.
Of course these sites are frequently visited by bears, so make sure not to leave any food items and other toiletries (including toothpaste,perfumes etc) outside the bear container.
We happened to spot a deer running across the creek..The water was pretty cold in the time we went (Jun 2006).
The creek running right next to these sites,makes the campground a bit cold at nights.
To sum up, I would say, this is one great place to camp and have some adventure!
