Pulled our 41’ house (fulltime family!) down the suuuuuuper washboardy road for ~3.3 miles about 8mph. Backed right into the 5th(?) sites. Do NOT tow beyond this campground if you are large. If there are no sites available, pull through the campground and go back to the highway and camp along the highway sites.

Perfect weather, chilly at night. Creek for the kids to play in. Open space for camp kids to run around in. It was amazing. I mountain bike Osberg-Adams + some for 30 miles and it was an EPIC, must do ride reaching 10,156’ at the highest point (8 miles into the ride).

Overall it was a great experience. I would not tow a large trailer beyond This campground!!

“Small grouping of dispersed camping spots”

All along Baker Creek Road there are dispersed camping spots. Here at this campground they have grouped 6 sites together and added a bathroom, picnic tables, fire rings and water. (We stayed in a dispersed site just a bit farther south on the road by Alden Gulch.)

The sites do not seem to have a lot of privacy, but the benefit of the bathroom might make it worth it, especially for tent campers. There's a large open meadow next to the campground and Baker Creek runs along behind it. It's a really lovely area!

There is no cell service anywhere along Baker Creek Road.
The road is well maintained (as of August 2017) easy for any type of car to travel on.
