Located on the creek and to the north of the road from the Bridges Campground is a two spot family campground. The spot is first come, first serve with a check out time of 1:00 PM. Cost is $5 per vehicle per night with a fee station at the sign. Because of the proximity to the creek and lack of pit toilets on this side of the road, campers must have black/grey tanks.
The creek is absolutely beautiful and the upper spot has a nice fire ring and picnic table while the lower spot has a fire ring only. The only drawback is the dead timber present in the whole canyon from a 2012 wildfire.
