Reyes Creek Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Is there any sleep aid more potent than a rushing stream? The sound of rushing water always puts me to sleep and keeps me there throughout the night, and that’s exactly what happened at Reyes Creek. Even though we were camped a good distance from the water, the murmur of the creek provided the perfect volume of white noise for peaceful sleeping. This campground is open all year and features generously spaced sites on and near the creek, where you can fish for rainbow trout or splash about in hot weather. Set in a wide, shallow bowl, the campground is dominated by scrub oak, manzanita, pinyon pine, chamise, silktassel, and, near the creek, live oak, cottonwood, and alder. Small boulders and sandstone formations are prominent in the surrounding low, chaparral-studded hills. At just under 4,000 feet, Reyes Creek Campground is best suited to spring and autumn camping, although there is a substantial amount of tree cover to shade you during the dusty months of summer, when a dip in the creek is just about mandatory."
