Yall. This maybe my favorite not talked about national park!
As you can see from the map, there's only a few places that vehicles can go within the park and a lot of the park is Wilderness Area. For me, that's awesome! I love Wilderness Areas and human powered adventures. Know though, if hiking is not your thing -the scenery is beautiful, the campground peaceful, and there are shorter hikes that can occupy your time. This, however, is not Yosemite where you could stay inside all day somewhere (your room or car).
So here's my beta and photos from our less than 24 hours there:
*Camping at Pine Springs: $8 per campsite with 20 tent sites and 20 RV/car camping spots each. The tent sites are a mixture of walk-in, park in front of, and ADA accessible. They are all the same price. We got campsite 20 (and I would say maybe 5 campsites were in use) and it was a park in front of with maybe a 30 foot walk from parking spot to tent pad (yay)! Campsites #1, 5, and 6 looked to be the longest walks from the map at the self registration map. The camping is described as primitive but had a lot of amenities - including flush toilets, dish washing stations, potable water, and the trailhead of four main hikes right across the RV lot. It actually reminded me of the Smith Rock campground, minus showers. Be aware that the campground is just a couple turns off the main highway and you will be able to hear the traffic. Personally, there was not enough noise to bother me and I'm a pretty light sleeper.
