Report: This was the most awesome campground I have been to in a very long time!!!! Very quiet,peaceful, and very well maintained for it's location. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful camping trip in the wilderness.
Conditions: A little muddy, but it had just rained. Bugs were minimal because it was rather cool. Most campsites have plenty of shade, but also the right amount of sunlight.
Water Availability: We brought more than enough. Never did find the ranger station, but we never really looked.
