Great park, equestrian section too, in the middle of nowhere

I've been here a few times. First, you have to find the entrance (lots of side roads to get there). The park looks like the African Serengeti with tall grass as far at the eye can see. A couple of miles into the park are the two campgrounds, one for normal people, and one for equestrians. (No insult intended, my daughter is an equestrian). Both areas have only 20 sites as I recall, but considerable shade and sizable sites.

I've only stayed on the "normal" side, but they have clean restrooms, and nice laundry facility. They have a small house for the ranger and a computer that visitors can use. The ranger keeps the firewood storage filled, and, at least the times I've been there, you pay on the honor system. There are no other park facilities. Cell phone service has improved over the years... you can now get a weak signal.

I really like the campgrounds, with one caveat. Its not close to anything. The nearest town is probably 45 minutes away. Basically, you better really like the person you are with, because you have nothing else to do.

We stayed here in a Tent.
