From Willow Springs, at the junction of Highways 60/63 and 76, take Highway 76 west for about 7 miles. Turn south on Highway 181 for a little over a mile and turn left on Highway Ap for about 3 miles. Turn right on Forest Road 857 and continue about 1 mile to turnoff for the day-use area. The road continues to the Noblett Dam and Trailhead.
This area is good. Its not the best but it will do for amateur campers. There is plenty of wildlife around and a lake not too far away from you. It is around 20 -25 dollars a night. I think this place is perfect for a wedding
