1 Review of Basin Creek Transfer Camp Trailhead
Creekside delight

A few nice options by the creek. Vault toilet, picnic tables, fire rings. No horses this time, so we let the dogs roam around a bit. Little sandy from the burn, also dead fall and associated hazards so beware I guess. Little buggy in early season, this is normal for the region.

I guess there are hitch rails at each site - I didn't realize what they were until I saw the description of the campground here.

On a side note, there is no hot spring at "site 4". I was asked by someone if there was, I think this site is confused for the old Basin Creek campground that is by the road. I did go over and check. There are plenty of hot springs around, just not right here.
