Good camp-site in the middle of a volcanic caldera. Pine trees surround the camp area going 100m up the steep mountain rim. Every spot had a fire pit and there was a walking trail going up and around.

Arrived mid Sunday afternoon as the weekend crowd were leaving. Lots of great sites with their own firepits. Plenty of shade and 2 portable toilets at the entrance. Others all very friendly and had a very relaxing nights stay. Great for dogs. My little foxy/jackrussel loved it. Will come back again.
