    DATE OF VISIT = Sept. 2020, site 91
    Price reflects 50% Access Pass discount
    VERY washboarded quarter-mile road in
    Water in the campground was off during our stay but the USFS emailed ahead so that we could be prepared
    Sites and loops well-spaced
    There are some okay CG trails, but GREAT hiking all around the area
    Nearby access to all amenities in town
    4 bars 4G Verizon
