“Quiet. Primitive. Any size camper has enough room. ”

Overall Rating

Public restroom. No water. Primitive sites. No fees. Small lake for trout fishing. Nearly always sites available but normally other people fishing. A few sites walking distance from lake and restroom. Most sites not so close. Two miles of gravel road into from hwy 149. Road has some washboard so have to drive slow. It is open range so sites can have cow piles and the cows occasionally disrupt campsites. One night they woke us up by rubbing on the camper.
Verizon service is good.
Boat ramp. No powered boats allowed.
Elevation is 10,250 so you’ll have frost mornings even in summer.
