Very glad we checked this place out. The road to get here cuts by a school and a residential area before it takes you to this spot. Because there are houses within a half-mile, I could see this place becoming crowded often. However, we came on a Tuesday and had the place to ourselves.

There are two connected dirt lots you can pull into off Van Duzen road, one has a nice amount of shade. You can also drive town right next to the river- in fact, a truck crossed the river while we were there.

We were greeted by a friendly ranger within a half hour of setting up. He let us know that despite the signs in the area, fires were allowed with a permit (which he gave to us free and on the spot). He also let us know that further down Van Duzan Road there was another camping spot called Crook's Creek that was more wooded- worth checking out if this site is full.

The closeness to the river was excellent. We came in early July, there were mild mosquitos at night but we did not encounter any ticks. I would have given this place 5 stars were it not right off the main road (quiet at night but pretty active in the early morning).

There was a small amount of trash around, but not much. If you camp here, you will be digging poop holes, so come prepared. Be ready to pack it out and leave no trace to keep this place beautiful for the next group.

“Gorgeous spot right on the river, ruined by dumping and bad vibes.”

Probably wouldn't camp here again. Got a sketchy backwoods vibe from the area and some of its locals, culminating with getting followed out of town by a guy I watched steal gravel and try to bust into the trunk of a recently abandoned car across the road. As always, YMMV. Free camping with a 14 day limit. 1 bar VZ 4G LTE.
