Great campground for OHV riding

We stayed here a few days in May. We had a great time. There were only 2 other people camping there the whole weekend. There’s tons of trails to ride side by sides. The campground is clean and the sites have plenty of space for our 28ft toy hauler. We would definitely stay here again.

A Hidden Gem

I stumbled across Camp Creek Campground summer of '19 when I was having some problems with my slides and needed to stop for the night.  The campground has several very large pull through spots, and folks with horses often pass through.  Upon entering the campground area, a caretakers spot is early on, while no caretaker was employed last year, there is a sanitary dump station at the site, as well as, potable water.  A bit past that is a large area for horse trailer parking, and a corral.   As one progresses down the road,  a large group gathering area is on left of the road, along with parking.  A bit further are large, clean, restroom facilities, and another area for both parking and pulling one's rig through to load up on water.  Continuing down the road are numerous camping spots, most are smaller.  However, a the end of the loop are two large spots big enough to pull a large fifth wheel or motorhome through.  A further two or three large back in sites are there as well.  A small stream runs through the back area, and endless hiking / horseback riding trails are in this area as well.  Further, there is another hookup one can fill their tanks with potable water (no sites have water hookups on site, except the caretakers).  When I was there in late July, the campground was maybe 1/3 full.  We ended up staying three nights.  

Drawbacks:  there are four to note.  First, while the sites are well kept, those with very wide RV's (mine is 92") or high (mine is 13') will find branches to be bothersome at best.  In my case I made a decision some time ago that I was going to be careful, but my rig was going to get used in the great outdoors, and that meant getting a scratch from time to time.  I fully realize when one is paying $60k - $500k and more, that may be somewhat less than desirable.  And while there are several good sized spaces, I wouldn't try bringing in anything longer than 36' (mine is 33).   Second, the road in is rather long, a good gravel road, but gravel (and dusty) none the less.  If one gets caught in the rain this area is well known for it's gumbo roads … they can be very miserable.  Third, a local told me that the place was heaven nearly all season … except .. during hunting season.   He used some rather colorful language to depict the camping environment during those six weeks or so in late fall.  Fourth, if you have a problem you are a long way from help, and there is no cell service.   All that said, this is a wonderful campground, great for kids and Old Goats like me.
