The previous reports are accurate and very helpful. Runway 15 slopes uphill and therefore the favored runway for landing. I would add that a swell exists at the touchdown area of runway 15 so plan the touchdown a couple hundred feet from the end of runway 15 and avoid the surprise bump. The airport is a worthy stop having an awesome view from the runway.

Runway is still in good condition. However on the south end someone did donuts on the runway leaving small ruts. They weren’t to deep but noticeable while taxiing.

Stopped in this morning to have some coffee and explore the strip for the first time, nice soft sandy/gravel. Little rocky at the start of the departure end of 33, taxied maybe 50ft or so down the runway before departing. Broken beer bottle shards in the camping area, would suggest bringing a trashbag for the next folks that head up there.
