“Small camp, lots of shade and privacy”
With only 8 sites and lots of trees and shrubs, this is one of the most peaceful camps in the valley. The road is a bit of a squeeze thanks to the dense shrubs but the Forest Service did come through and try to prune things back a bit last fall.
The sites are all fairly small but a couple of folks did manage to wedge campers in the 25' range into some spots. Basic Forest Service tables and fire rings at each site. One vault toilet located in the northern loop and a hand pump for water. Forest Service volunteers come through daily to clean up and check on the camp. Local sheriff deputy drives through on the busier weekends as well.
This is the only camp that offers any real views and you have a clear view up the valley. Easy access to the river and a large open grassy area. There is a smaller runoff channel/creek that flows through the northern camp. In the spring when the water is high it can flood site #5 and come over the road as well.
With all of the trees and shrubs surrounding each site and the noise of the river its easy to forget there are other campers here.
