Sites were well marked with okay spacing. Definitely plenty of room, but not secluded. Each had a picnic table and a fire ring.
We got there about 4:30 in the middle of the week in late September and there was only one spot left.
Looked like about a third of the spots were people who had taken up residence. About a third were fisherman. About a third just traveling campers.
The river wasn’t particularly scenic, but it was right there. Lots of towering trees. Restroom was clean for a vault.
Not a bad stopover, but not a destination site unless you are fishing.
Good cell service.
All the forest service campgrounds in the area were full and we happened across this place. We stayed 3 days & it was very peaceful. Each day a few sites opened up mid-day. There is a beautiful flat water river with two access points and locals tube and paddle here. There are tent sites, back-in sites, and pull through sites. Our site was on the river though separated by a thin strip of woods. At night we could hear coyotes. There are a lot of people who drive through looking around and kicking up dust, but that's the only negative. There are no hookups, only a central hand pump for water and no dump station. Prices are cheaper for residents and those with state fishing license (who have already contributed to the up keep).
Entry fee is $12 per camp and gate closes to get back in at 10pm
I have camped here multiple times by tent and always enjoyed my stay. The camp spot at the very end of the road is by far the most private and spacious spot.
All of the camp spots are close to the river and have easy access to bathrooms and trails. I have camped with 4 tents in one space and still had room for more.
Great spot to stay
We had a great time during our stay and the camp hosts were extremely friendly.
