The 15 non-reservable campsites sit along a river bank that leads into Hosmer Lake; keep busy with popular area activities like hiking, horseback riding, and fly-fishing. And keep tabs on important weather alerts and possible closures via the campground website.

There is a path to the marsh kayak ramp between campsites 14 and 15, so people walk through the area regularly. All sites seem to have reasonable shade coverage.
