“NOT RV-friendly, if entering via Palisades”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2017

Overall Rating

I enjoyed camping here, since I was in a 4x4 SUV. However, you would not be able to get an RV into Douglas Creek. Right after entering, there is a huge mound of dirt in the road. I can't tell whether it was put there or is just a result of so many ORVs going back there, but I couldn't even get my SUV over it. Fortunately, there was a flat camping spot right before the mound, but even that required a climb up a pretty steep hill.

All of the land along the road (Slack Canyon Road) up to Douglas Creek is private property, and there isn't a good turnaround anywhere near Douglas Creek. I wouldn't try to drive to this area with an RV.

Edit: It looks like there are two different ways to get into Douglas Creek. I went via Palisades Road (off of Hwy 28) and Slack Canyon Road. The BLM site (actual link: https://www.blm.gov/visit/douglas-creek; the above link does not work) directions say to take H Road, off of Highway 2 east of Waterville. It may be that the access off of H Road is more RV-friendly.

Has anyone else gone in v
