The vibe at Sample Meadow Campground
Drop some Sample Meadow Campground knowledge on us.
Sites are generously sized for multiple tents, and spaced out such that you might not see other parties from your own site. That said, don't be surprised if you see some of the local cattle trundling through the campground.
The track from Kaiser Pass Road down to the campground is mostly unpaved and rough at times. Vehicles with low ground clearance not recommended; similarly for 2WD vehicles in wet weather.
We brought our 21' trailer. It was a slow drive down a bumpy dirt road. I wouldn't have towed anything larger. Great private campsite along a river. Cows walk through the grounds regularly. A great hike just up the road.
