Lots of parking if you are planning to camp in the back country. Showers available in the front camping sites but very limited parking. Our Troop started at the Overflow Parking trailhead and hiked towards Site C. Lots of water available BUT bring your filter device. Started up the trail towards site B. Fairly Steep and trail has three nice flat spots in the shade to rest. On top - What a Veiw! Bring a camera. Cell Phones work only at top of the ridge. No cell phone coverage available in the valleys. We hiked on, past site B. No Latrine at "B".
While descending towards site A, be carefull on your way down. Many large steps and many opporunites to slip. Reminds me of walking on ball bearings. Use the swicth-back method. The trail is wide. Lots of opportunities to slip and fall. Be careful.
Site A, our overnight, is very large and will accommodate many large groups. Latrine is fairly new and kept clean on a daily basis. Be Sure To Keep The Door Closed. That will help keep the flies down. Water source for filtration is available but watch out for the algea.
Lots of wildlife, birds, many species of trees and plants. Wonderful trail called Maple Trail - a must see.
Plan for time to sit and watch!!!
