Loved this location. Only a few sites could accommodate our 32' travel trailer.
Bathroom was clean, as were the sites.

One caution- coming up from Paris Valley Rd, WATCH YOUR JACKS at the hairpin at 6.2 miles up.

What a find! 7 campsites on the top of a mountain. Takes an 8 mile ride up a dirt road with about 1500 feet elevation climb. No problem for my 27 foot class C towing a Jeep. One toilet. Nice picnic tables (with roofs!) and fire pits. 14 day limit. Views. Hiking. Shooting. If camp sites are full, there are other places nearby you could... more

“a pleasant, small campground with amazing views!”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2019

This was a great campground. there are 5-7 sites, mostly designed for RV's, but my little tent and I fit in nicely. I imagine it can be uncomfortable up there if it's very windy. The ground tends to be very hard, so bring a hammer if you plan to drive stakes in. There is also a clearing about 1/8 mile before the campground, so if i... more

Great free spot! Beautiful scenic views, quiet you only find in nature and cell coverage! Each campsite has a covered picnic table and a fire pit. As of August 2018, fires are not allowed. There is a vault toilet that was overrun with harmless spiders...had to clear their webs away before use, but not that big a deal. The road to get h... more

The road up is dirt, about ten miles. Someone said there is a faster way up, but the road is more difficult. The road also indicated impassable in wet conditions. We took a chance since it was still light out and if the road was bad, we would just turn around. We drove up in a Toyota Prius with no issues. It was windy, rainy and cold w... more

This campground is exactly what we imagined boondocking would be like. Highly recommend! We plugged the GPS coordinates into Waze and it took us the wrong way apparently with roads that didn’t exist. Replugged it into google maps and it showed the correct route. The drive up is a little wash board-y at times, single lane and dirt ro... more

Nice views from the top of the hill (almost). Only 7 sites, not all with much shade. Great place to hide for a while. Not to much traffic, but the area is open to shooters, so you might not see them...but you can hear them all day.

We love our current location a little extra because our last spot was such a bust. The drive in was on 5 miles of dirt road after the rain, so we got a little muddy....
