At 9,000 feet up, this campground is one at which you should take it easy on the beer if you know what we're sayin'.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June/July. Very nice and comfortably cool at night and morning due to elevation, so you will need your sleeping bags. Water spigot had a boil alert because the water had not been tested. This was a hassle, because who wants to boil water using precious stove fuel, put it in a water bottle, and then hike in 90+ degree heat? If you drive in with your own drinking water, it is less of a deal. We expected drinking water from the website, and we had to find alternative spots for water. The fishing was very good. The drive was far from Escalante on a dirt road - good to have a pickup, but watch the dust in your bed even with topper - we used our tent tarp to cover everything.
