This site is just off and in view of Scott River Road, however it is very quiet with occasional traffic.
All tables and fire rings have been removed, but boondocking is still permissible.
The sites are not designated, but there is relatively easy access to open places where you can park your rig.
This is dry camping only. No water, electricity, or toilets are present, and no fee is required.
A short hike down the side of the site area is available to reach the Scott River.
Rigs larger than 30' would not be able to park near the fence which overlooks the Scott River.
Cell service is not available.

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.
