REALLY Remote but Well Worth the Drive
You have to really want to get away from it all to visit this park but the terrain is magnificent. The campground is well-kept with a cute little creek running right through it. You even drive through the shallow creek as you circle the campground. The campsites are a bit small and might be difficult to park larger rigs. Cell service is almost non-existent except on T-Mobile with a booster. Incredible scenery.
