The vibe at Ponderosa Campground
Drop some Ponderosa Campground knowledge on us.
Beautiful campground and chill camphost. This site would be great for late autumn or late winter. I had read yelp reviews regarding an insect problem at the campground which is sadly true. The flies made it unbearable for one of our guests and they left early. There were dense clouds of flies all day and would only clear once it cooled off at night. Moving around the site or even hiking did not slow them down.
I came here on a solo camping trip in March 2018 for a few days. When I came to Ponderosa campground, it was $25 a night.
The campground itself is beautiful. It's pretty nicely spread out too. It is right by a creek, which was completely flowing when I visited. There were so many birds, it would be a great place for bird watching.
There is no service out here, so be aware of that. It also got below freezing at night when I stayed so make sure you have the right sleeping bag. Each campsite has a picnic table, a firepit (which you don't need a separate campfire permit for)
I will definitely be returning.
