The farthest north in the park, these campgrounds are also the most vertical (at almost 5,600 feet) AND the most secluded. Boasting some of the best views by day, these sites are also excellent at night for their cosmic vistas. Relatively sparse in terms of amenities, these campgrounds must be hiked to and therefore require a bit of sweat and toil to reach. But fear not, for once you arrive it will be well worth it!
