During my time here I stayed in Loop B, but here’s what I learned about Loop A:
My visit: April 1-14, 2017 – (Click pics for large versions)
Site 1 is a nice sized back-in to the right as soon as you enter this loop.
Rounding the first corner are Sites 7 and 8, both pull-thrus.
Site 11 is the most requested site in this loop due to its privacy and trees.
Site 17 has beautiful mountains for its yard, but it feels a little too close to the road to me.
Street scene coming to the road leading back to the front.
Back to the entrance now, Site 24 at the end of the first loop.
Into the second loop now is Site 29.
In my opinion, Site 31 would be the least desirable since there’s no buffer between the site and the road.
Site 37 seemed like a nice back-in.
Almost to the end, street scene showing Site 46 on the left looking back into the second loop.
Since I wrote about how impressed I was with the restrooms/showers in Loop B, I heard this loop’s building was a bit smaller and older, but it was still immaculately clean facilities with modern equipment.
Loop A Details:
47 reserveable sites in this loop, some back-in and some pull-through. All sites have 20/30/50 amp and water at each site. Roads and sites are all paved and have picnic tables and BBQ grills. In this loop only, some sites can be reserved as either electric or non-electric (1, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23 25). This option can only be had by calling the park office directly and then electric panel is locked and not usable. No generator use allowed. See links above for more details and rates.
Park Manager Steve Haas told me that since Loop A is the older loop, it has more trees and shade in general. Big rigs usually stay in Loop B and the views tend to be a little better due to being a bit higher. Loop B is manicured a little more, while A is kept a little more natural.

Transparency/Disclaimer: As stated openly on my Home page, I do barter whenever possible for review space on my website. It’s one of the ways that help support my travel habit and keeps this site free to readers. But I always make it clear that my reviews are my honest opinion, can never be bought at any price and if I wasn’t satisfied, I would also state that (just like I do Pros and Cons on every campground I review, whether it’s bartered or not).
