“Beautiful views”

Overall Rating

We camped in Cunningham for 5 nights in mid July. The road is good for the most part (suitable for cars), but narrow and bumpy in places. We towed in a small trailer, but several big rigs made it up as well. Our site was on the plateau above the mining tailings. Lots of little trash pieces, and broken glass everywhere, but the views were great. Right behind are old mining relics. On a Friday, there were scenic private tours that would drop off a cart load of people, some who even wandered pretty close to our campsite. There is a vault toilet in this canyon which you can see from camp. Most sites are along the road with walking into the grassy area to pitch a tent between the creek and road. What would make me reconsider this site are the marmots. They eat plastic! We noticed some of our trailer's wire casing nibbled off and had to rig up the trailer with old random wires and baggies to protect our brake wires. The waterfalls on either side though were very nice to listen to at night. You can walk to many trails from that site. About 20 minutes to Silverton.
