Know Before You Go
This is a primitive campsite. Bring your own shade, drinking, and rinsing water.
The only amenities are vault toilets and picnic tables. No trash service so haul out what you hauled in! It’s best to arrive during the day so you don’t disturb anyone already there with your vehicle’s headlights.
