Overall Rating

We did not stay at Woodchuck Flats but drove past while we were off-roading. Sites are first-come-first-served and services are vault toilets and trash/recycle only. [Although at the time of our visit on a Friday in July, trash and recycle were both full. Did not check the toilet.]

Sites are basic and are intended for tents since access is via 3 miles of dirt road.

Due to its proximity to Signal Peak (where cell towers are located), cell service is primo.
