  1. Susan Yeung says:

    We stayed at campsite #9 for one night 5/18/2023 – 5/192023. We had a wonderful time there. The vault toilet is clean. However, be cautious of RATTLESNAKE! We saw a rattlesnake in the bush right next to our tent in the early morning (around 7:45am). Other nearby campers also saw it in #9 campsite the day before. It looks like this campsite may be it’s home. Be extra cautious if you gonna stay in this campsite!
