Quiet BLM CG with woods and creek running through

Decided to stay here for a couple of nights after traversing the TOTW from Dawson City. TOTW is no worse than many back roads in Wyoming coming off of the Big Horns or the Beartooth!

Back to campground - at least 25 sites available. Back in and pull throughs as you make your way further into the campground. At the back end of it there are 5 or 6 sites in a circular area. These are probably the largest of all the sites. There is a vault toilet up at this end of the cg. Each site has a grille, fire pit and picnic table. Site #23 is specific for bicycle or motorcycle only. Site #25 has a tent platform and is right next to the river. Up the hill on the back side of the river is the "highway" leading to Chicken/Tok AK. Noisy when vehicles go over it, as it is a bridge right there.

No hook ups. We have starlink, internet and phone work great. NO phone service otherwise.
