This camping area, along with the 2 other areas on this road (Tallaluh River & Sandy Bottoms) is the place to be if you’re looking for a weekend away from everything! No electric or water hookups, however there is a communal water pump in each of the Campgrounds as well as 2 pit toilets. At the beginning of each drive through area is an information kiosk & place to pay. Please make sure to pay so we can continue to enjoy places like these!!
The campsites are all equipped with a fire pit with grill, picnic tables and lantern poles. As well as bearproof trashcans spread throughout the grounds.
The most coveted sites are the ones right next to the stunning river & during summer months can be hard to get on a weekend!! If you plan to head out there during the summer—I suggest you try to get there on a Wednesday or Thursday to raise your chances of procuring a river site. During certain times of the year you can see an insane amount of fly fishermen all up & down the river, it’s. Beautiful place to watch!
Keep in mind the road to the campground is about 4-6miles long and not paved! It follows the river the entire way, crossing back & fourth over bridges. Just be sure you’re not running low on gas when heading down here!! Most cellphones will lose signal but I find that to be a great thing! An over abundance of Fireflies (lightening bugs) can be seen during certain times of the year as well... a fun time to go!
There’s also a place to Ford the river to gain access to campsites set deeper into the woods! Just make sure your car/truck has a high enough clearance before attempting to ford!
Remember—there are bears around so never take food into your tent or you might wake up to a rummaging bear at night!
I’ve seen an array of different RV’s in these sites and the majority have been super great at not running their generators—except for one weekend....it was ridiculously loud and obnoxious, so if u plan on taking an rv just be mindful of others and do not run your generator.
The road that brings u to these sites is the only way to a small “town” (unincorporated) If u continue down the rosd past the Campgrounds you’ll come across a great little mall!! 😉
Please be mindful of the people that actually live down this road and do not trespass!!
