Similar to Big Oak camping area, Big Cedar offers centrality, water and electricity, and is close to multiple restroom and shower facilities. Start your stay by exploring nearby historic ruins (always cool), loop-de-loop on the 3-mile hike/bike trail, or hit up the gift shop which also offers--dare we say--free Wifi access? We know you came here to get away from the internet, so just forget we ever said the “W” word.

Good if you're not looking for a 'rustic' experience. You're butt-to-butt with other campgrounds and there's full electricity and water at every campsite, with a bathroom and showers not too far away.
