  • It's a cliché. We see in the leaves of orange yellow, red, green, Brown, ochre... The hiking trails are traversed small waterfalls, of leaves that fall in pearls as the wind is able to rush through the trees, all with fragrances of fall so strong that it comes to wonder if this isn't our brain that gets to play stereotype. It is a sublime place, reasonably attended to this season, enough in any case to offer a few meetings at the bend of a path (the Americans are masters in "chit-chat"). The mountain lakes and the view of the peaks from the Sterling Pond Trail is sublime (marked "difficult", but relatively playable, except maybe with children)!

  • Beautiful campground! For such a small campground your site feels cozy and private. Clean bathrooms and great views of the mountains. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend!
  • Camp sites are fairly secluded with a nice fire pit. Running water is pottable and clean. Shower is pay, but nice. Great view of the stars on a clear night. Best of all the staff is friendly and helpful. Be sure to take a minute at the Ranger Station to check out all the Humming birds.
  • Great campground! Clean sites, staff are very helpful and have great attitudes. Always clean restrooms and showers. I love how they come visit you before they close up at night to make sure you don't need anything. We look forward to many camping trips with them.
  • I love camping here every year. Quiet sites and very clean. If you like to go camping but not sit on your neighbors lap - this is the one.
  • My friend and I had the best time on this trip. The rock climbing was amazing!
