Comments:

A *massive* flash flood ripped through this campground in September 2004. About 1/3 of the palms shown in the photos above are now strewn about in the lower portion of the wash. Most of the RV hookups and shade ramadas were destroyed. The campground is cleaned up and re-opened, but call ahead to determine what facilities are currently available.
