Awesome. They keep it well maintained, but you should get there earlier so you can have your pick of the nicer spots. Didn't realize that when we reserved our camp site we would get there, check in, then drive around to choose a site. We were late so by that time a lot of the good ones were filled up.

This looks great! Planning a memorial day weekend rafting trip on the Sacramento River, so this looks like a GREAT PLACE to camp out.

I enjoyed this place very much! There's a river nearby the train tracks, the water is very cold but another river that feeds into it is pretty warm, it also has a cool swing. Hiking to the top of the Crags is awesome! At the top is an oasis of white stone/sand with beautiful green foliage. I would recommend going on the hike about two or three hours before the sun begins to set as that's about how long the hike takes (start 4 - 5 o'clock)
