Description

High winds, no shade, water or restrooms. Don’t all sign up at once! Nature’s comforts (or, lack thereof) aside, these seven primitive campsites do provide a picnic table and fire ring. Also, vans, trailers, and motorhomes are allowed at these sites (so technically, your setup can be very un-primitive). However you choose to stay, just remember the golden camping rule: pack-in, pack-out!

Not much to do at this site, but great dark skies at night to watch the stars.
