This place was absolutely stunning. When we were here the falls were perfect. The water wasn't too strong, but the rocks are slippery at points. Some people like to remove clothing so keep your eyes out if you have kids! The top of the falls is beautiful and there are several pools to swim around in. Some deeper than others. You can see occasional trout in the streams and deeper pools. We just got home and we already want to go back.

Great little campground on a long dead-end road. Very isolated. There is a trail on the south side of the creek that leads to some waterfalls. The creek also tumbles down a series of granite basins that are great as swimming holes. Keep your eyes open though-- lots of rattlesnakes.

Great little trail! Follow it all the way to Upper Peppermint with excellent fishing along the way! Super easy and appropriate for the whole family. Get there early in the summer because the creek dries up around the end of July.

I absolutely love this campground. I have some photos I will try to add later.

Nice gentle creek flowing through with trout to be caught. Follow the creek downhills to explore a stunning waterfall.

This is a real nice campsite for taking the family out for good fun. There's trout swimming up and down the stream, from the bridge you can see schools of fish hanging out in the clear water. We saw some deer grazing the pastures from a distance. During the summer it was a little cool at night. There were some RVs parked at a few sites but no bigger than 16'. This campsite is close to a road but it's not a busy one.
