My husband, kids and I drove from Utah to Nevada and found the turn off for the Berry Creek campsites quite easily. We took a chance and dragged our 22ft trailer behind our pickup- bad choice. We got part way up Forest Road number whatever, but we couldn't get to the actual 'Berry Creek' sites mentioned in this listing because the road in was very narrow with sharp turns where we worried about jack knifing the camper. A few times. we had to drive through trees which were leaning into the road. We have a full size pickup and.....SCREEEEATCH! (Most of the scratches were not serious.) The road was also pretty rutted in places, and rocky... Pretty typical BLM roads from what we have seen, so we weren't surprised (Why then did we pull the camper? Well, because we have seen some darn fine roads, too. Just not this one. But don't let the road turn you away. Go anyway.)

Like I said- we took a chance bringing the camper, we know it and own the scratches with a sort of sad pride. Don't bring your Toyota Corolla. Do bring high clearance (or even mid clearance- is that a thing?) vehicles. Heck- bring one of those tent campers with the big bouncy wheels, you will be fine.

Back to us- We managed to pull a U-ie, and find a few flat spots where folks had obviously camped before. (Bet they made poor choices like we did...) Lots and lots of red ant hills at one spot, but a ton of animal (probably cattle) bones at the other. We chose bones over red ants. We parked and hung out for the weekend happily. Our spot was within sight distance of the road, but even on the 4th of July weekend, there was minimal traffic. Desolate, quiet, peaceful... Full Moon. I would go again in a heartbeat- without the Trailer, of course.

*High clearance vehicles work best
*4th of July weekend- high 90s.
