This is for the camping at Cottonwood Springs. Very secluded not many people were camping there (early June) so it was perfect. The Stargazing was absolutely epic. I went to sleep at 10-11 thinking it's barely better than my Tennessee night sky out by the lake but man was I wrong when I woke up at 4 am (by chance). It was breathtaking and I didn't want to go back to sleep. Plus the nature trail was nice right next to the campground.
