Off the beaten path!

If you're looking for a nice secluded spot a little bit out of the way but not totally in the middle of nowhere, this is a great spot. The campground is 5.5 miles off of state route 113 down a gravel Forest Service road that is well maintained, however the road is gated and not maintained in winter.

The campground is a small USFS run facility with two small loops of sites. One loop has three sites and the other has 9. All sites are nicely shaded and have fire pits and picnic tables. The three sites in the lower loop are all pull through or back in sites. The remaining 9 are a bit elevated and have a small parking area about 20 yards (nice or take) from each site. Some require climbing a small set of stairs to access.

The lower loop's sites are right on the Wild River and are a bit larger than the others. The campground has two sets of vault toilets which are well maintained and odor free (at least in the fall). The campground only had two other sites occupied so it was like we had the place to ourselves.

There is a water spigot available for fresh water and serves as the only running water at the campground. There is a camp host on site that is eager to help and answer questions if needed. Sites are $18/night and there is an "iron ranger" (pay station) at the entrance.

If you're looking for something a little off the main road, this is your spot!
