We had a group of 14 over three campsites. The views were amazing. Our kiddos were playing with kiddos from other camps, everyone we met was really friendly. Beautiful hiking and nice secluded sites! We had a lot of fun watching the climbers and climbing...More

If you are not a hiker, this is not worth the trip. you can see some things but not much. You just drive around in circles.
