East Fork Campground is a large campground with a big mix of sites at about 8500’ in elevation. Some are so small, you can barely get a car in, while others are fine for large rigs.

Site 126 was plenty long enough for our truck and 25’ trailer, but the tree just opposite the site made backing into the space a challenge. The site was large and unshaded which was fine for the mild weather while we were there, great for solar charging. The creek was just across the road, excellent for fishing, too cold to swim.

The site was fairly large and had a couple of well placed shrubs that made it feel quite private.

No hookups at our site, but I think some are available.

The restrooms are flush toilets, kept super clean by the three camp hosts. I don’t think there are showers or other amenities beyond selling firewood.

The real star of this campground is access to Rock Creek Trail just up the hill. It’s several miles up the road, so don’t count on hiking up, but is one of my most favorite hikes ever.

You can also get great peach cobbler at the small resort across from Rock Creek Lake or rent small boats for day use.

There is a convenient dump station that is included in your campsite fees - at Tom’s Place, the turn off from Highway 395,
