  • It's pretty but loaded with mosquitos. The bathrooms are rustic and the showers are warm but gross looking. Tip* one of the mens shower does not require quarters. Try turning it on before putting money in
  • This place offers tranquility and relaxation opportunities. Jump in the swimming hole, take a walk, hike a 4000 footer, all right at your doorstep.
  • Great camping. Quiet, very clean. Close to hiking trails.
  • Extremely helpful staff and pleasant campground. Would absolutely come again
  • OK, a true campground with great facilities. Coldest water in the state! Great trails, nice location for planning any family trip or hiking the White's.
