Beautiful!!! We showed up on Sunday eve of Labor Day wknd and there were only a handful of people! EVERYONE left on Monday-we stayed until Wednesday with a campground to ourselves. The water had not been tested yet (& was turned off), so the ranger kindly waived our fee (18$ tent site). We had rain 2 eves, lots of sunshine & very cold at night. We stayed in site 7 & thought it was the best in the whole place! A trail behind the site lead to a magical meadow filled with irises. Hike to the ponds-it's lovely! Drive down 1950 to just past McKrystal campground to a parking area. One way you can walk to an old boyscout camp (about 3.2 miles rt) and the other way leads to remnants of a ghost town (about 5 miles rt). See my blog for info
