ROUGH access road the last ten miles or so, very sharp/large rocks, hairpin turns and single lane old wooden bridge right after blind curve. Some steep spots. No trailers!!! No long wheel base!!! HIGH clearance a MUST! I did not have to engage 4wd but would definitely be necessary after any rain. Some soft sandy spots.

LOCATION/SITE QUALITY/CLEANLINESS: Quiet, isolated camp area, very primitive. No water (except fairly clear shallow creek - obviously use filtration/purification) no toilets, no trash cans - pack in/pack out.

Spur road heads into steep walled narrow canyon; canyon lighting, gets darker earlier in canyon/camp area than surrounding areas... when arriving plan accordingly. Heavily treed, with tall conifers and lots of undergrowth and smaller deciduous trees. Campsites are in large clearings, however. Very pretty setting. Fairly clean, except for debris in firepits.

There are two camping areas, the first area on spur road has two "sites," the creek is not evident at the first area; the second area, about 1/8 mile further down (at dead end of spur) has only one site, with the creek right alongside. It has an old rough wooden picnic table, beat up but very servicable... all sites had rock fire rings. The trailhead into the Quinn Wilderness is at the dead end, the trail follows the creek. The campsite shares parking space with hikers at trailhead (dirt/grass not defined - other than USFS signage at trailhead.)

Camped in early Fall. Only saw three other vehicles while there. None camped or parked.

The fire pit was pretty full of what seemed like years worth of debris; but the place was pretty clean overall.
