Drinking water is available during the summer months at Diamond Campground (click here for reservations).

If you want a good place to bring the whole family for the day and still get your climbing fix in, this is a good place. There are trails to hike, fishing in the river visible from the routes, or rappelling from 30 to 100 feet. Surprisingly not a very busy place. Also shady belay spots.
