Amenities, shemenities. Who needs ‘em when you’re surrounded by the great outdoors? Similar to Moss Lake, campers must hike 1-3 miles on rugged terrain to reach Walnut Springs Campground’s ten primitive sites, where neither water nor ash producing fires are a luxury. If you must cook a warm meal, bring your containerized fuel stove and some of those sweet freeze-dried pad thai packets. Outdoor composting toilets are within walking distance, and perhaps best of all, pets are allowed!

Plenty of shady spots to choose from in this area. Unfortunately for us, a boy scout troop moved in at 1 AM! I think this might be a more crowded campground as it is a short hike from the parking lot. Moss Lake may be a better bet for a more secluded night, but it may depend on the day. Ask the rangers before heading out which campground has had more check-ins!
