Hard to find any level ground here, and the amenities are showing their age. $25 a night is ok for this dusty park.

A pleasant place to stay. Gets full later in the day but lots of choices and reasonable amount of shade. Amenities adequate but no extras. Surrounds are very scenic and unique. Love this area. Lots to see. Don't miss the Original river crossing or escarpment climb if you are fit.
