If you stay at the weekend the public picnic/barbecue area can be a little noisy for those sites in Oak Point that are close by, so if you want quiet during the day, aim to get a site at the other end.

No running water in the bathrooms. Overall the campsite area is small and the trails connect from the campsite to the Fremont Peak trail

Camped here for NYE this past year with friends. It was empty! Reached cool temperatures and we even witnessed some falling snow our last night. The right gear makes all of the difference! The views were beautiful. Sites were a tad small (there were three couples in our group). Vault toilets are never nice but weren't as bad because of the cold.

We stayed in Valley View. Pleasantly small. Not much to do if you have small kids who can’t do steep trails yet. Site 7 is completely exposed, to the point of being uninhabitable during hot afternoons. Site 8 has the best view. Other nice options were 3, 4, 5, 9 & 10. All in all, a nice campground not too far from civilization. Just avoid site 7 if it’s warm.

Oak Point is a nice campsite (separate from Valley View) but when we stayed (in June) everyone was tormented by flies!
