  • Great park. Camp host is on it. Very friendly and helpful. One of, if not the best, dump station we've been in for function and cleanliness. The drain was level and a straight shot. No curb to cause the drains to go uphill before draining like so many others do.
  • Wish we had more time here to be "rockhounds." We love hiking the trails and searching for natural treasures. Great campsites with great views. Bathrooms were super clean.
  • Excellent camping, fantastic restrooms and showers, the campground host and volunteers ( Connie and Jack ) are very helpful and knowledgable, and the Ranger Robert is on top of making this one of the best campgrounds I have had the Pleasure of visiting!!! I AM grateful for them and their hard work. Also very inexpensive! $14 for overnight and only $5 for day use😉😊😇🙏💚
  • This park is beautiful with incredible sunsets and great rock hounding area. Plenty of Jasper and we even found some chalcedony right at our campsite. Nice showers and hosts and a nice little visitor center. It's usually pretty full but still nice and quiet at night.
  • We thought, "Oh no!", as vehicle after vehicle pulled in, but it was very quiet and relaxing. Bathrooms are clean. Host was very friendly. So many stars!!! Tent spots are not on top of each other. Glad we decided to stop here.
