It is recommend that all vehicles greater than 35-40 ft. do not attempt to drive beyond site #9 Approx 6 miles from Hwy 135 as the road becomes very rough, narrows and requires high-clearance 4×4 vehicles

FR 740 is a gravel base road that is well maintained and treated for dust. It is heavily trafficked by cars, off-road vehicles and bicycles. It is a two lane road until it reaches the formal campground, from there it becomes a single lane. The valley is popular with off-roaders, mountain bikers, hikers and nature lovers.

For all sites past site 6 there is a narrow one lane section of the road as it turns north. This section of the road is in some disrepair and is rocky. One side is a cliff face and the other a gully of rushing water. It is large enough for a 5th wheel to travel the lane without any danger, but it is not a fun spot to meet an oncoming vehicle. I would not attempt this section of road with a rig if there is any snow left on the road due to how close the river is to the roadside.

Site 8 is a rare site in the National Forest due to how close it is to water. The site is grassy and at a slight slope towards the river, which does cause some difficulty in leveling. To level our 5th wheel parallel to the road we required 2 cut 2X10s under the far wheel set. It is full sun and Starlink capable if you are able to hoist it above the rig due to a nearby mountain ridge (note in photo with Reflection 5th wheel how high dish is lifted). The site is large enough for a 33 ft 5th wheel to turn easily, but our truck did require 4X4 to pull it out due to the slight slope of the site.

The road it very busy during the day with Jeeps and other off-road vehicles heading to the trails further up.

There is no cellular connection in valley.
