Report: Lovely campground but the sites inside the loop are VERY close together. Well treed, shady sites. No sign to the road to the campground so ensure you watch the milage exactly.
Conditions: The vault toilets were the cleanest ever... smelled better inside than out.
Water Availability: Plenty of water spigots.
