Roaring Camp was the answer! We came from New York and California. This was an amazing trip and a wonderful experience. We planned this trip for a year and the Roaring Camp family was so helpful the entire time. I was flying with some family in from New York and we needed to have tents and sleeping bags shipped to the camp.
Roaring Camp made the process so easy. We checked in up top, and Kim conveyed us down the one lane dirt road to the bottom, and our camp sites 7 and 8. Everything is clean and tidy. Many bathrooms and showers, all well maintained. We flew in, so many things we did not have.
