There is a gate that opens during hunting season which adds more camping sites, but the only pit toilet is at the entrance. Heavy rains flood several of the sites. Many people come just to hike the trails that cross nearby, there are more cars than campers.
If you’re looking for a place to get away from your busy life and reconnect with nature, Yates Place is perfect for you! This dispersed camping location is fee and reservation free, which makes it a great place for a cost efficient & spontaneous adventure. Make sure you bring a car that’s suited for off-road travel because the path to get to the camp sites is very bumpy. Also make sure to bring your own food, there are not a lot of places nearby to eat. Every camp site comes equipped with a fire pit, so make sure to pack those marshmallows! My only complaint is that the restrooms are not very clean, but using the facilities while camping in the wilderness should be the least of your worries. I would definitely recommend giving this secluded camping spot a try!
