The popularity of the campground is exceeded only by the popularity of the trail. It is often easier to find a campsite than a parking space.
The campground has a compost toilet that sits precariously on the steep bank, like the mine shaft of an abandoned mine.
The Forest Service claims the campground has 29 sites; I only found 20, but as most are very hidden away, they are probably correct.
The campground is divided by a crude bridge that crosses Lena Creek. My otherwise fearless dog Boca was intimidated, but the children camping there were not.
The nicest thing about this campground was that people of all ages seem to have rediscovered how to play: girls in bikinis, infants carried on papooses, couples, men with their dogs, and entire families.
