The campground boasts big, grassy sites that are not clustered together unlike many military campgrounds. The base facilities are great and in convenient walking distance. In fact, one could walk or run for miles on the abandoned roads that surround the campground. To keep the grass green they water in the late evening, so watch your stuff. The base is convenient to scenic California Highway 49 and the Gold Rush towns, but not much else. Apparently, the option exists to select a site when making a reservation, because we were told that some vacant sites were unavailable because people were coming in at later dates.
