The campground is a group camping facility made up of several individual sites, which can accommodate a group of up to 40 people. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets. The campground has no running water so campers must bring their own supply.

Natural Features

This shaded campground is set back off the main road for privacy. Dense stands of aspens shade the campground, and pines, sagebrush and wildflowers dot the landscape. Evenings in this area are cool.
