Stunning scenic overlooks and flush toilets - these are the two major amenities of these grounds located at just off the Canyon Loop Trail. Be careful on your way up as the terrain can be extremely steep and rugged at certain points. You might want to consider bringing an extra sweatshirt or blanket here as the temperature can be a bit brisk at nearly 2,500 feet!

Stayed here with a group of friends for Memorial Day weekend 2017, the first night the wind was CRAZY, kept me up all night although I am a light sleeper. We even chatted with some other campers and their tent had blown away! The next two nights were super easy and chill though. About a mile hike in, and we arrived there during the hottest part of the day so it was a little sweaty but overall an easy hike. It felt like Moab in Texas! The area was gorgeous, and the hiking was fun. No defined camp sites, so we kinda wandered a bit to find a flat area. The composting toilet was in a little outhouse, stocked with toilet paper. I'd definitely recommend this camping area and park! If you get hot easily, like me, I'd visit in the Fall/Winter!:)

It's about a mile hike to the campsite, easy with very moderate inclines. There is a composting toilet that always had toilet paper when I was there. Plenty of room to spread out - you can wander a bit into the surrounding area to find some seclusion. The scenery around the sight is just gorgeous, and it's well situated to hit all the key hiking trails in the park. I would definitely recommend this underrated State Park and this campground in particular.
