"Great camping area but not a ton of spots"

After driving around a bit on the various dirt roads in this BLM area, came to the conclusion that there were maybe about six real sites, is my best guess, mostly on the furthest south dirt road in this area. However, for overnighters there are... Read more

"Just adding that there is dispersed camping along nearby Fish Slough road, also"

I came in on a Sunday evening and there were very few spots available (way more spots available Wednesday afternoon!). I finally found one that I liked but I asked a BLM guy about other camping and he told me that I could also go down Fish Slough... Read more

"Great campground, just want to add a note about where to get water"

Lots of good reviews so I'll just say where you can get nearby water. The camp host, a nice guy, let me know that you could get water in Aberdeen, one mile away, at the Aberdeen resort (you passed it on the way to the campground). There's a little... Read more

"Very difficult road to try coming in off Hwy 313"

I didn't actually make it all the way to the campsite. I saw a review down below that said, oh, you can just zoom in coming around the back going the long way. Well, you will face some rock ledges in the road and that kind of thing if you attempt... Read more

"Better for high clearance vehicles with good suspension"

I made it only about 100 yds down this somewhat funky washboard road with my two wheel drive truck and pop-up camper before I stopped and backed up back to the highway. If you have a high clearance vehicle it probably wouldn't be bad at all, I'm... Read more

"Definitely better for high clearance vehicles with good suspension"

I made it about 5 mi down this funky washboard road with my two wheel drive truck and pop-up camper before throwing in the towel. As if the washboard wasn't bad enough, I started seeing areas of soft sand on the road. If you have a high clearance... Read more

"Only one spot available unless you have high clearance."

You go about 100-200 yards from the road and turn right, and go uphill another 50 yards to the ONE spot (and it is beautiful) for regular clearance vehicles, which is at the top of a little hill. If this spot is taken and you have a higher... Read more

"Recommend high clearance vehicles only"

I drove a few hundred yards down this road and it looks like it might lead to a very cool area but I started getting pretty concerned about my two wheel drive truck that only has regular clearance.

"Cheap camping in older, somewhat run down, but pleasant campground"

Campground on the army base, open for use by all. There is water available at some sites and a clean Porta-Potty but electric is not available (there's electric at two sites but they are on a month's-long wait list) and no dumping on base. Maybe... Read more

"Note: it's possible to reach the canyon area from a paved Road"

I already reviewed this site almost 2 years ago but I haven't seen anyone else mention coming in from the paved road to the east of the freeway instead of from the long, bumpy dirt road on the west side of the freeway. It turns out that right... Read more
