    Description

The Madrone Group Camp hosts a large group campsite as well as newly installed cabins which can be reserved here. The primitive Devil’s Gulch area is comprised of a group horse camp and two small group sites just above Devil’s Gulch Creek. For additional park information visit the Samuel P.
