    This campground sits at the bottom of a canyon JUST off of a main mountain road. It doesn't have a lot of shade. It doesn't offer much to do near by. And there is a lot of early morning traffic whizzing by on weekday mornings. When I was there in April, there were very high winds that would come through the canyon in the afternoon.

    Whether you will like this campground depends on what you like to do when you go camping. If you like to just hang around the campground, then you might like it here. If you like to hike and do other active things, there isn't much here for you. It isn't a bad campground, it just doesn't have much to offer other than decent campsites.
