About Big Flat
Big Flat Campground is a small, quiet campground bordered by Hurdygurdy Creek. Since it is far from towns and highways, it’s the perfect place to “get away from it all.” The campground is semi-open; trees shade some sites, others have part-shade. Shrubs and grass fill in between sites. ACTIVITIES Camping Hiking: An “All Access Trail” leads north from the campground two miles to Fox Flat. This hardened-surface trail accommodates wheelchairs, bicycles, horses, and foot-traffic. From Fox Flat a dirt trail (not accessible) continues five miles to the South Fork of the Smith River. This trail is dubbed the “Ford to Canthook” section of the Old Kelsey Trail”. Other hiking trails within a one-hour drive of the campground include the South Kelsey, McClendon Ford, Summit Valley, Gunbarrel, Paradise, and Little Bald Hills. Consult the hiking section of this web site for details of these and other NRA trails http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/srnf/recreation/hiking. Recreational Vehicles
