This is down a dirt road and then you turn into smaller dirt roads. We came in a little after dark so the dirt road to the first camp site (below the dam?) looked a little rough so we continued up here. This area is clearly used for atving but no one was here. There is a small bathroom facility at the entrance but we didn't see it in the dark but did see it on our way out in the morning. The roads are rocky & bumpy but easy to navigate. Sprint coverage was roaming only. The road that goes past the campground and over the river was closed when we left out (I moved the barricade as it only said closed the oppressors direction). The sign in the barricade said "closed Monday through Friday 7 am- 6 pm."
