Report: This place was really Beautiful. We camped righ next to the creek .There were many breathe taking sights once you hiked up the trails that were only a few steps away from our campground. We had 7 of us in a group. It was really quiet. We even had some ladies trying to go tubing in the creek. I recommend this place for all ages. Bring your hiking gear and dont forget to have some cas. You do have to pay daily for the campsite and teh parking. They did provide restrooms, but no showers.
Conditions: We went this past weekend, friday June 30th- 2 July 2006. It rained mid afternoon for about an hour each day. So we snuck in a little nap.
Water Availability: No drinking water, or garbage dumpsters.
