“Heavily wooded NF campsites alongside River.”

Overall Rating

Remote from town about 10 miles just off Hwy #2 on the East side of the South Kawishi River.

Access roads and sites are gravel, most sites take some leveling effort. Little to no water views due to tree foliage. A camper should be pre warned about summer insects, plentty of trees and heavy brush between sites.

A good place to be away from summer tourist crowds.
