Overall Rating

You must have a 4X4 to get up here. 13 miles from HWY 20 The bridge / culvert was washed out several years back so the road ends. DO NOT TAKE UP A TRAILER there is zero area for turn around. There is lots of 4X4 people coming through but you are off the road. There is plenty of places all around the area even on the lake. Must have a camp fire permit and in fire season the rangers do not like cook stoves. Guns OK. Plenty of room to shoot.

Crazy Marty would stay here again
