This small, three site tent-only campground is surrounded by a fine stand of old growth Douglas-fir.
The springs for which the camp was named originates nearby along an easy, 500' round trip loop trail. Additionally, interpretive signs explain the role of the historic Oregon Central Military Wagon Road (a portion passes near the campground) and the role of the Bull trout in the regional watershed ecosystem. Equestrians, hikers,and off-road cyclists can easily access the Middle Fork Trailacross Forest Road 21.
There are only three spots in this cozy little campground, but I ended up being the first and only one here on a Tuesday in July. There are little trails to explore, but I took advantage of the empty campground and took a nap in my hammock in one of the day use areas on the other side of the creek.
There is one vault toilet, no hookups, no water, and it would be a massive struggle to turn around a trailer or RV. No cell service. None of the sites border the creek, and none of them are particularly private, but they were all clean, and the creek is loud and pretty.
3 Campsites , fire ring and tables but NO hookups , small areas, RV up to maybe 15 feet in ONE spot. NO drinkable water on site. One vault toilet. on side of a hill so terrace camping. Running creek by but steep banks and no swimming holes. VERY quiet and out in the Woods. No camp host. Road is dirt and no paved camp sites for RV.
