We really enjoyed Crab Flats CG and the surrounding area, so much so that we stayed 3 nights longer than planned. This is primarily an OHV CG with immediate access to all kinds of off road trails, which is why we were here. We did NOT tow our big rig here but tent camped. I drove our Ford F350 with the gear and my husband rode his adventure bike. The last four miles to the CG are on NF 3N16. According to the camp host, it had just been graded and was so rough before that the garbage truck wouldn't make the drive. I didn't have any trouble getting here but had to go super slow. That said, there were plenty of 2WD vehicles here and folks towing big trailers with ohv toys.

The CG is very quiet during the week but a bit of a circus over the weekend. We arrived with a reservation for site 28. But in talking with the camp host, we learned that site 4 is FCFS and was available. Site 4 is up a little rise, separate from the other sites, and has nice shade all day. So we moved to 4 and had a wonderful experience. Site 14 is also fcfs but was not as desirable.

Vault toilets were clean. Arrive with water. There is a spigot by the restroom but no water pressure. To refill our water containers, we had to go to Green Valley CG. For ice, there are small markets in Green Valley and Running Springs. Excellent Verizon signal (forgot to do a speed test, but fast).

This is a very nice, well kept campground! It was very quiet, we stayed 5 days and had the campground to ourselves most nights. The camp host is very nice and helpful and does a good job at keeping a clean campground. There are a lot of trails to hike nearby and for offroading.

The road to get to the campground is rough and at points terrifying pulling a trailer! Definitely take a 4 wheel drive, although we had neighbors that made it in a Prius. Pulling a trailer down the road was tough, but possible.
