Report: The wife and I spent six nights at Snowblind site # 13. What a wonderful campground. Our site was lined with aspen and pines trees giving it a very private feeling. The sound of Tomichi Creek, “witch runs through the middle of the campground” provided us with very relaxing evening setting next to our campfire.. Thanks to the campground host, Don And Beverly, the facilities were first-rate. The vaulted toilets were very clean and they have a hand pump for water. There were more mosquitoes than I would have liked. But with the placement of a few mosquito coils that problem was solved. This is a great campground to use for a base camp to explore the many jeep and atv trails in the area. Were already making plans to return to Snowblind next year. Thanks, Don&Beverly your doing a great job. Russ& Jo

Report: Spent two nights, 6/11 and 6/12/00 at site no. 15. Cost is now $10 per night vice the $7 reported here. Facilities are very good, with exceptionally clean vault toilets and a good hand pump for water. Hosts (Tom and Mary) are very pleasant folks and are very involved in managing the site. Negatives were the number of mosquitoes...the many old beaver ponds just upstream on Tomichi Creek provide extensive breeding sites. Overall a decent campsite with a good trip up to Tomichi pass in the Jeep...
