“Peaceful, shady, creekside camping at its best”
Reviewed Nov 25, 2015
This campsite was an unexpected gem, and one of our favorite stops during our month-long trip in Sep 2015. It's a small USFS campground with only 8 sites, and only one of them has a water faucet (site #1). Each site has a decaying picnic table, fire ring, and rusty grill. There are restrooms, and trashcans, but that's it for facilities.
What makes this place so special is the beautiful forested setting alongside a rushing creek. The campground isn't used much, and we were the only ones there. The only sounds are the wind in the pine needles, and the sound of flowing water.
It's a little tight navigating into the campground, and at one point the tree branches were scraping the sides and top of our 30' motorhome. I would recommend not circling the loop, but rather stopping at site #1 or #2 at the front of the campground. We had to make some multi-point turns to get situated.
Here is our blog entry featuring the campground:
