“Free Camping in a Large Open Meadow”

Overall Rating

This is a sizeable dispersed camping area in a grassy meadow situated right next to the Duck Lake Trail & Elk Creek Trail entrances. We didn't stay overnight, but scoped it out while accessing the trails. Definitely a busy place as there were several large groups of families/campers spread out throughout the meadow. There's one vault toilet available, but no other hook-ups. Not a lick of cell phone service in the area, so be prepared.
