Be sure to bring your own (large) trash bags -- this camp area has NO trash cans, dumpsters or garbage pickup services, so you will have to pack all your garbage out.

We got here on a Thursday around 3 and there we're plenty one night spots left though they all filled up by nightfall. $16 a night to camp with an additional $7 if you came by car. Husband was happy with the fly fishing and I was happy with the perfect sunset.
