Nice spring provides the drinking water. Beautiful area but some of the other campers can be loud.

I wish I could keep this to myself. This one is a gem. Easy-ish hikes to waterfalls crisp clear running water, and the tastiest spring water you will ever find at a campsite.

A short but decent hike past the sites will bring you to this waterfall which leads to clear deep pools of crisp, cold water.  You are welcome.Your next campsite is right behind me when I took this picture.  Just past the beach is this beautiful scenic view of Onion Valley.  The only weird smell we could detect was coming off of us.  :)This beach area is about 2 minutes away from the campsites on the way to Onion Valley.
