My son and I might be able to make it out there. Crossing our fingers that the schedule will work.
The primitive area is a great first time backpacking option. The trail is less than three miles in and there is a flushing toilet and water spigot close to the campsites so if porcelain thrones are important, this place has it. There are trees for several hammocks but not near as dense as some of the car camp options.
Springfield is a water only section that has showers, plenty of trees and is a great place for hammocks. In fact that is the part of Fairfield where we have our annual fall group hang in November.
The park staff is great and the place is very hammock friendly.
