There's day use parking in this campground to enable access to Natural Arch via a 1/4 mile trail.

This is one of my favorite campsites in the park, it's further from the crowds of Hidden Valley, and has some really beautiful rock formations.

For tent camping, this is by far the best established campground in JT. However, beware of the Angelenos arriving from the city at all hours of the night and without any consideration for people that are already sleeping at 2AM.
