Highly recommend staying here. Will be trying to get back here next year, for a longer stay this time. Only issue is showers take $2 tokens and are only 5-7 min. Great sites. Great views. Bring your bikes and hiking shoes.

Be certain to take this drive either at sunrise or no earlier than 7:30 at night. We saw a moose, deer, and mule deer. The area has a lot of hiking trails and picnic tables as well. It is a beautiful drive.
