The area also offers beautiful scenic drives. A variety of planned routes are available, with maps available at Forest Service offices.

Additionally, a 2.5 mile interpretive trail winds around the campground.

Facilities:

This large campground offers 74 reservable family campsites that include a picnic table, fire ring and tent pad. Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.
