Quick and Quiet

Went for a weekend ride in the forest and chose this campground. It has a vault toilet and 8 sites that are first come first serve. Both Friday and Saturday night there was only one other site spoken for.

It was nice hearing the bull frogs in the overnight as well as the owls. Ensure you have some type of insect repellent as the mosquito population is not lacking. Sites are open and have plenty of room.

The picnic tables are made of concrete and are starting to show signs of aging. I don’t recall seeing running water anywhere on site, doesn’t mean there isn’t.

If you are looking for a free place to camp close to the coast or right off a forest road, you found it!

First to Review
Lots of traffic

This spot was good enough but there were a lot of people driving in and out through the night, like 2-3am. We wouldn't stay here again unless we had to. Toilets and water available.
