This is by far the best campground I have ever stayed at. The fee was $20 per night and well worth it. There are a few different loops to choose from and reservations can and should be made during the summer months. You are guaranteed at least a decent view from no matter where you are in the campground. The view from the site that we picked happened to be amazing. I have never seen such a diverse landscape with the endless sand dunes, snow covered mountain peaks and the creek running along the base of the dunes. It was breathtaking. There were even deer that would filter into the campsite from dusk to dawn. It does get cold at night, though, so bring warm clothing. The only bad thing I can say about this campground is that the restrooms do not have showers, that's all.
