Primitive camping

Quite, friendly area with very primitive camping. Creek is spring fed so water is always cooler then most creeks.

First to Review
Great for solitude

$5 recommendation donation for the night. Stayed at this campground as a halfway point hiking the Big Piney Trail loop. Typical primitive campground with toilets, bear-proof trash cans, and camp sites with fire rings and picnic tables, but not much else. Didn’t see any water faucets near our site.
