Small and quiet campground, felt very homey with a nice community feeling of those staying the night. Was a bit of a drive into the campground, and gate locked after 5 PM so felt safe. Would definitely stay again.

Have Stayed Twice
Again had nice stay..as before all staff helpful and friendly...the warm showers are great and even a disabled shower which is great for me..due to all the rain ur still not allowed on any dirt trails, but that also keeps crowds down..ton of very brave coyotes so be very careful with pets..not a wooded campsite feel at all but for the area and conveniance its great..nice shopping area just outside park so grocery/propane resupply is easy...i prefer azusa for wooded camping feel but prefer this for quick simple relaxing weekend trip close to grocery store..

This place is WILD
Beautiful scenery and a nice place overall. Incredible hikes, a fair amount of privacy and sizable spots! My only complaints are the price and the stay limits... I understand these might not be other people's complaints, but $30 a night for a spot with no hookups whatsoever is a bit high. 30 days a year is the limit. Also, no fires for most of the year (understandable, as it's all dry grass) and zero cell service in the camp spot.
The Rangers are all very cool, and they'll give you the combo to get in and out past hours. Pretty convenient.
As far as bringing a trailer or RV, the road into the park through Elnivar is VERY narrow, steep and has a lot of sharp turns. A lot of places you have one lane to pass.
Bugs and animals aren't a reason for me to detract from its rating, because it's nature and that's what we're there for. That being said, there are BILLIONS of ear wigs (pincher bugs) that will infiltrate everything you have out. I mean billions. Rattlesnakes, scorpions, etc
