Minimal light pollutionGreat night photographyFirst-come, first-served campsites
Set your tent up next to a wall of tall boulders. This campground can offer a little shade, which is key especially during the warmer months. At the campground, there are 124 first-come, first-serve sites for $10 per night. Each campsite comes available with a picnic table and fire ring. The campground has pit toilets available.
Be sure to stay hydrated, not only because of the warm weather, but also the elevation of the campsite, which sits at 4,400 feet.
You can check for updates on the National Park Services website.

More secluded than Hidden Valley
Hidden Valley is usually thought of as the primo campgrounds, but I enjoyed staying here more. It was quieter and the sites are secluded. If you've got a bigger group, try to snag campsites #1 and #2, they're the first on the right and great for a larger group.
