Cool spot!

Pulled off the side off Patrick Creek Road and found a spot right next to the creek. The sound of the creek was soothing and it was very private. We couldn’t see or hear anyone nearby.

Great place

Right off Grant's Pass. The creek is still very clean with lots of water even in September. No mosquitoes, large sights, wooded area so very dark at night

This is a great place to camp and only a short drive to Crescent City and Oregon. coast
