Loved this campground and its beautiful scenic views of Lake Dennison. Bathrooms were super clean (can't do anything about big bugs that arrive post cleanup!) Sites were large and neat, although our firepit needed emptying. The only drawback was that hiking trails were a bit...More

great place to hike for those not into climbing mountains, trails are wide and clear, plenty of different routes so that you can vary distances and routes, quit and never see motor bikes or 4 wheelers driving around so walking is safe
