The trails here could be described as dry and a bit rocky, but the scenery is really top notch. Nestled right under a large dam, this area offers a dozen creek crossings and some clean and new facilities.
There is an alternate staging area to the south (see directions) which works just fine for day use. You can reach the campground this way also, but there are three or four creek crossings, some nasty washouts, and some short sections of volleyball sized rocks. Pickups should have no problem and short travel trailers could probably make it, but it might take you all day. For big RV’s or toy haulers the northern access route (dam crossing) is highly recommended.
