  • We hike in to the park and hiked out. The tent sites for pct hikers is not very level. The bathroom is good with sinks and soap. Showers are available which use tokens purchased at park headquarters. ...  more »
  • I loved it! EXCEPT the fee! I feel that the fee is excessive, that said, this is one of those SPECTACULAR places that really stand out in memory, for awesome beauty, it is hard to beat. You be the judge! for a visitor who has never been, the fee is of no consequence, (as a local who would like to hike or picnic often, there lies the rub).
  • My family and I go camping here every year. It's nice and relaxing except for the train that likes to blow its' horn late at night and early in the morning. Other than that it's a nice place. The rangers are friendly and very helpful.
  • Hiked the nearly 8 mile round trip from the lower parking lot to castle dome. Trails are well marked. It's an uphill hike all the way so be prepared. Beautiful scenery and amazing views.
  • Awesome place with absolutely wonderful views and hiking trail! The water from the river is so fresh! Great place to visit with wonderful, hospitable, and knowledgeable Rangers.
  • Really unique rock formations and great rock climbing. Does take about a three mile hike to get up to the nice rock climbing areas, but it is worth it.
