3 Reviews of Pilcher Creek Reservoir
Best free campground ever

Plenty of campsites available. Campsites are drive up with fire pits and picnic tables. Very clean vault toilets. I had two neighbors and it was very quiet all night. No trash. There was a working water pump at the campsite. No bugs. Accessible via a long dirt road, no issue for my Honda Civic. Campground is not marked from the road. I’ve slept at 10 or so free campsites nationwide and this is definitely the best one so far.

Perfect quiet and free!

We stopped here for a quiet overnight. About 25 minutes off the freeway, last 2 miles are gravel. Beautiful setting and deserted. Plenty of room for any size RV.

Quaint rustic basic fishing hole.

Free, with some trees, vault toilets, dock, boat ramp…
