    This is a tent-only campground (no trailers/RVs). The road to North Lake is partially paved and partially gravel, and the road is narrow and winding. Three of the sites are very short walk-ins and the remainder have small parking spots at the sites. Each site includes a bear-proof food storage container, table, and fire pit, while the campground includes vault toilets.
