Report: Unless you like no trees when you camp, go to this campsite. We went memorial weekend 2006, the forest service cut down 80% of the trees in the campground. There was cut wood scattered everywhere, they did'nt bother to clean up anything. We paid full price plus a day fee, ridiculous! The forest service or someone should have emailed the bad conditions to us before we arrived. Not recommended....
Conditions: No trees.Mess.
