The camp is along Tower Ridge Road in the center of the Charles Deam Wilderness area, approximately one mile from Highway 446. The camp also is a trailhead for the Charles C. Deam Wilderness trail system. There is a picnic shelter at the site, a loading area for people to easily mount horses, including people with disabilities, and hitching posts. Trails from the site link to the trail system in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness.

A field with pit toilets. Free but often loud generators from horse trailer

No set camp spots but great to set up and have no light pollution! Close to town but also right off some amazing trails! Sometimes the horse trailers get loud with generators but it is a horse camp ground!

Great car camping experience!

I solo camped here overnight and had a pleasant time. Before arriving I had questions about where I'd be able to camp. I called the local ranger line and they were super helpful. A restroom is available on site. For being fairly close to a busy road, it's so peaceful you'd have no idea at all! Free camping if you don't have horses with you!
