“Very steep road up and no place to level an RV”
Reviewed Mar 28, 2017
We liked the idea of camping alongside a lake so planned a two-night boondock here after also checking out the Washington State Fish & Wildlife website listing. Unfortunately, nothing mentioned that the road up has a grade of between 8-10 degrees. There was a sign posted at the bottom of the road warning that "Trailers Not Recommended" but we thought that might be because of the twists and turns of many mountain roads, which we'd experienced climbing through the orchards outside of Oroville.
Once we'd committed, there was no place to easily turn around so we went all the way to the lake, only to find that the only parking/camping area that is pictured on the WSFW website also has a steep slope, making it impossible to level a 32' fifth wheel. We managed to turn around in the area and back down we went.
Although we can't comment on the camping, we did want to warn others of the extreme grade on the road and no level place to set up. While we didn't have any problems with our rig, some units might have trouble braking on the way back down.
This campsite is suitable only for tents, truck campers and small travel or tent trailers.
