Huff and puff, I finally make it to the Emigrant Campground; my world is slanted here on the fan
This is a rather sparse campground that feels like a big gravel parking lot carved out of creosote bushes plowed down, equipped with a bunch of picnic tables, and with garbage cans and a public water tap on one side of it. The public washroom just down the road is a nice convenience.
Though deceptively dull at first, it's actually a really nice location. First of all, being high up on the alluvial fan at 2000 feet allows for expansive views all around, which are especially nice at sunrise and sunset.
It's a bit cooler up here than on the valley floor and several interesting hikes or bicycle rides could start from this location into the surrounding hills.
Another positive trait is that this is a tents-only campground.
