Summit Campground

There are two walk-in tent sites with picnic tables and fire grates. There are also two picnic areas with shelters and pull through camping units for RV's and other vehicles. The campground has a handicap accessible vault toilet.

A 100-yd hiking trail leading west from the campground provides visitors with  a scenic view of  the underlying valley. Summit trailhead is in the north end of the campground on the west side of the road. The campground has sufficient parking space that can also be used as a meeting point for Summit Trail.
