The vibe at Upper Hole Campground
Drop some Upper Hole Campground knowledge on us.
Quiet, peaceful, likely all yours and great swimming. You have to work to get here but it's worth it. Be prepared. The hike in is rough even without a pack. If you tend to drink lots of water, bring a bladder so you don't run out. Hike will test your mettle.
Not a bad idea to call ahead to the ranger station to find out where water levels are: the recent drought, and what time of year you go will affect water levels and possibly where you camp. August water levels tend to be much lower than June.
