This site will remain closed for the season due to maintenance projects. Douglas City, Steel Bridge, and Junction City are other BLM campgrounds nearby that charge a fee and are open from May through November, weather permitting. Camp on the edge of the Trinity River in one of 8 primitive camping sites, suitable for tent camping or small trailers. Popular for fishing and pleasure boating alike, this clear, cold section of the river is world famous for its fly fishing. Paddlers enjoy the narrow valley with Ponderosa Pine, Douglas fir, Oaks, and Madrone trees coating the walls of the canyons. If you would like more adrenaline rush, the waters below Pigeon Point rage at class III-V for white water enthusiasts. Those interested in a more relaxing experience can enjoy the abundant camping options in the area or head for the trail with your friends, horses, or dog. If you would like to stay at the river's edge, you can always swim, fish or do a little gold panning. The river can be accessed from many locations along this stretch of the Trinity River.
