I just stopped by to have a look at this campground as I was passing through. I didn't stay for the night. I would not bring my 30' trailer, but I certainly would my 13' Scamp. I hiked up the Steel/Odell trail a few miles. A very pretty dirt trail through a lodgepole forest.

The campground has 11 spots. It seems a little run down. It was empty at 5 PM on a beautiful August Friday afternoon. There are two pit toilets. Each site has a fire pit, a charcoal grill, and a table. At least one spot had a flat graveled square for a tent. There are a group of food storage boxes in the center of the campground. The campground itself is fairly open so not a lot of privacy from site to site.

The campground is 6 miles in from the pavement. The first 3 miles are a good graveled road. The last 3 are a wide dirt road with potholes. Some of it is very slow. Because of campsite size, a 20' trailer would be the max. The turn around loop at the end of the campground is plenty wide for a 20" trailer.

There are a couple nice hiking trails right out of the campground and it is close to the Big Hole River which is popular fly fishing. There is much camping along the Big Hole which is more convenient for a day of fishing but also next to the road and crowded.
