Overall Rating

French Creek is in the Buffalo Gap Natl Grassland (NF). 7 sites, grills, tables. Vault toilet. If you have 4 wheel or high clearance vehicle you drive north out of the campground and into the Agate Fields to the north of the campground. Downside was no Verizon coverage even with a booster within the campground. Did have coverage about a mile to the west.

Road into the campground from the west (Fairborn, SD) is dirt, relatively smooth with some minor washboarding.
