While this may not be a great place to sleep in the winter, the winter bouldering is awesome. Yes, it can be a little hit and miss with the snow. But when its on, its the best time of year to be here. No crowds, very little noise, and minimal grease. Apr 2, 2010

For many years (1970-2000?) this campground was called by the NPS "Sunnyside Walk-in Campground", yet all the climbers still referred to it by the original name "Camp 4". This led to some confusion amongst newcomers, as all the signs and rangers called it "Sunnyside". I'm glad to see the signs have been changed to reflect the original name. I noticed some web sites still have "Sunnyside". Jul 24, 2007
