Report: The drive to the campground was nice as it's tucked away in the mountainside. The creek wasn't as close to the campgrounds as I was hoping, and the fishing in the area wasn't that great. Overall, our experience was ok. I probably wouldn't go back. It is secluded and very private though if that's what you're looking for.
Conditions: Weather was perfectly sunny & high 60's or low 70's during the day. But at nigth, it was cold. We camped here in early Sept, so make sure to bring the appropriate attire. We didn't encounter any bugs either, and our campsite was pretty shaded. Other campers were far away so noise and private wasn't an issue here.
