          There are a lot of positives about this place. Our site (#134 this time but we've stayed in other areas, too) was private, quiet, near the toilets/showers and came with a delightful abundance of rock squirrels, bunnies, the occasional lizard, wrentits, towhees and crows. Vultures,...More

          Sorry - didn't finish last answer. Getting to the apex coming back to the campground is over a greater distance so it's even more gradual.
