“Absolutely beautiful Forest views”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Thoroughly enjoyed our time on Green Creek. We camped right on the edge of the creek we didn't see any wildlife the whole time we were there however we did get rain and did get some flooding but didn't lose anything and we stay the night in Higher Ground at the lookout just to be safe. Needless to say everything was safe and in a few days the water went back down and we were able to make it out the road again we never did make it to the lake our vehicle is not four-wheel drive so we couldn't make it all the way. We can't two and a half miles from the GPS coordinates on this spot. Right at the site of the Hydro Damn from the 1800's.

“Gorgeous and remote”

We did not actually stay here because we needed cell coverage and there is no cell signal for either Verizon or AT&T. We will come back though when we have a few days off work! Cell coverage ends once you lose line-of-sight with Hgwy 395.

Green Creek Road is unpaved and has minor washboards and a few larger rocks but is wide and we could easily (if slowly) get our 29' Class A down here. Once you are a mile or so away from Hgwy 395 there are numerous small pull-out sites with informal fire rings and many are scenic and beautiful. Check your public lands maps to make sure it's legal to stay in these though.

The campground at the coordinates given is a little loop along the stream. Some sites are small (tent or van only) but a few will accommodate our small Class A. This is not a formal campground so there are no toilets or trashcans. Sites have informal rock fire rings. There were numerous mosquitoes at the time of our visit (June 28) so be prepared! The scenery however was not to be beat, with the snowy Sierra's behind you and the meandering stream. During our drive we saw deer, a coyote and what appeared to be a marmot. There were also ducks and lots of songbird on the creek, with signs of beaver too.

The Green Creek trailhead is just a short drive further up the creek.
