Isolated and underused this is ideal car camping. Non OHV and equipped with a fire ring and pit toilets with a new potable water system. There is also trash cans and an emergency phone. A few of the sites have an oldschool camping stove and firewood abounds all around. Pay with the drop envelopes with a max stay of 14 days. Nearest town is about 6 miles away (45 min drive). The PCT is about 2 miles behind camp with a fantastic trail and parking lot. Swimming is everywhere with a particularly nice spot hidden behind site#1.

Ideal car camping location. Not many people. 
Great trails nearby. TONS of swimming.
