Description

This is a hike-in, primitive campsite for those of you who would prefer to rough it. It’s got 4 tent sites and horse corrals, in case you’d rather ride in. A footpath runs through the the site, parallel to a nearby creek. No campfires allowed here and no potable water, so stock up on water and on food items you’re willing to scarf down sans-roasting!
