Escape from the city to the rustic and beautiful McGill Campground. The campground, bursting with views of mountains and valleys, is an ideal base for several biking and hiking trails.
A dense stand of Jeffrey pine and ponderosa shade the campground and each site is nicely spaced. A perk of camping at McGill is the chance to see hummingbirds. They happen to love the area.
