“Nice access to river”

Reviewed Aug 15, 2018

Overall Rating

This small, but nice are to camp is located right on the Scott River near river access with good fishing, rafting in spring, swimming in summer. It is about 17 miles from the small town of Ft. Jones, California so it is not near any major highway. We are sorry to report: At last visit it appears that the Forest Service has eliminated this campground for "official" camping. The area is still accessible right off of the road, but the signs have been removed as well as the tables and other amenities. It is believed the area is still available for day use and camping as a "dispersed area". Please contact the Forest Headquarters for up to date information. No drinking water, no restrooms (removed) fire rings and tables mostly removed.

Elevation: Approximately 2,200 ft.

Number of Campsites: 4 family sites. Sites are flat and is handicap accessible.

Day use: Available

Affiliation: National Forest Campground Klamath National Forest ~ Scott River Ranger District.

Hiking: Across the road from the Kelsey Creek Trail. Nice day hikes and longer trips into the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

Open Dates: Most sites within the Klamath National Forest are open from mid-May through mid-October. Some sites may be available with reduced services.
