Rose Valley Campground Reviews & Ratings
Rose valley campground is a great spot to spend some nights and hike, the waterfall is the main attraction and is only about 10 min walk from the parking lot, very easy to do. Don’t forget to pay your dues, the campground manager checks often if everything is in order. There is no shade in this campground, bring tarps, summer months gets lots of sun and some insects that look like flies or gnats are around. There is only one site that offers tree shade but is easily taken, coveted by many. Latrine style bathrooms available August 2019 $20 per night $10 day use
This was a great campground. We stayed over three nights. They have a management service that came Friday and Sunday to empty the trash and clean the bathroom. The bathroom had plenty of toilet paper and was pretty clean and not terrible smelling for a hole in the ground with a toilet seat. We stayed in Campgrounds 8 and 9. These directly border an active creek which was a great way to fall asleep. Each campground has a fire pit and BBQ stand. Note that Campground nine was slightly lower in altitude so the ground water made the ground pretty moist. If it wasn't for that it would have been the best campground by leaps and bounds. It even has a tree for some shade. The nearby hike to the waterfall is easy easy - maybe half a mile. The waterfall is spectacular, it had rivulets streaming down over green moss. The best part might have been the small cave, underneath part of the waterfall is an opening you can slide into (take off hats and glasses and you'll get wet). Inside is a cave area four or five people can stand up straight in. It's tall and narrow, must go up ten feet or so. Every campground was full over the weekend, but nearly empty Sunday night. If you can go during the week you'll have a much more private experience.
Beautiful hiking trails, I thoroughly enjoyed the trek to Rose Valley Falls. It's not a particularly difficult hike, and the reward is well worth it. It feels almost magical.
Beautiful and quiet wild place, not a lot of shade, don't forget your sunscreen !
Great waterfall. Find a way to the shelf above the first falls for a relaxing refuge.
