McBrides' Camp

The camp is found in one of the last true wilderness areas in the Park, where there are no roads and virtually no signs of humans. This intense wilderness quality, so hard to find nowadays, together with the full complement of various forms of life (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles) is what McBrides’ Camp offers.
