This is great campground with typically clean amenities. Rangers are occasionally seen walking around checking sites but they mostly always leave people be. There are one or two free spots just past the actual campground on the right if you are coming from the main road. The free spots are road side so you'll be dealing with traffic at times but it's worth it if you're into dispersed camping.

Loved it both times i was there. Great for night kayaking! Just wish it was a little more private. Campsites are about 30 yards apart.
