This campground is the cream of the crop in Standish-Hickey, but be warned that it might be closed. It’s now open during the summer, after being closed off due to limited state funding.

If your biking through on the coastal route, you've either just climbed a brutal section or your about to, so...

Go immediately across the street from the Standish-Hickey rec area for some DELICIOUS and reasonably priced sandwiches.
