Not a campground to be by yourself (try Obsidian Creek), but a solid campground that has flush toilets, heated showers and obviously running water. Nice place with good hikes, guided nature walks, heated pool, beautiful meadows/views and a decent fishing stream for rainbows and browns....More

Folks on horses getting in the park from outside (without paying most probably), bringing in unleashed dogs to run around and chase and bark at hikers makes the park unpleasant to visit. They should have a stricter policy about horses and loose animals. We were...More

Bathing suits available if you forgot yours. Located in a snowy valley--first we took a hike up the valley in the snow to a frozen water fall, then came down and luxuriated in the hot pool.

The hike cannot be shortened as it is a straight trail to and from the waterfall. I cannot recall the exact distance, but my daughter did it when she was 4 years old. We hiked it this summer and I want to say that it is 4-5... More

There are spaces right at the pool yes. But they fill up first. There is a ranger on the gate who diverts you to the further away parking. Any reasonable ranger would let you head up to the ranger parking spot at the pool
