Overall Rating

We did not stay here, but we did drive the six or so miles down the essentially one-lane dirt "road", hoping the whole time we wouldn't run into anyone going the other way. The road was misleading; sometimes not too rough, then bam!, we'd hit a sharp bump. We have a 24' full-height trailer and it was too big for anything other than the first one or two sites, and even then, it would have been tight. Low-lying tree branches made the other sites inaccessible. What stopped us from staying here after we finally got there was a forecast for rain and the thought of trying to drive back out if the "road" had turned to mud.

Access challenges aside, if you have a small enough rig, this does look like a prime place for viewing wildlife and serious peace and quiet. The view from the first couple of campsites we inspected on foot do indeed look over prime moose habitat.

But overall, if you have anything other than a very small rig...don't bother.
