Ain’t no party like a party in the mountains! Just be careful not to party too hard, you don’t want to disrupt the habitat of the endangered Laguna Skipper Butterfly that chose this place as its home before we chose it as our vacation home. El Prado’s five group campgrounds sit at an elevation of 5,600 feet, and each site can sit 30 to 50 of your hiking homies. No need to hike to the campground itself though, each group site can squeeze in a rig up to 40-feet, and there’s a large overflow parking area, so drive right on up. Forget bringing water too, you can refresh right outta the spicket up here! Can’t beat that mountain life.
