We stayed at camp site #7 because the creek runs right by it. It was beautiful, and we loved having our tent right by the water. There were not a ton of level surfaces for tents or tables, no bathroom near this site although there’s one at the first site. We had no cell phone service for several miles before reaching the site. There were also lots of mice. Brave too, they were trying to get our food as we were eating it around the fire! Luckily the bear box they provide keeps the mice from getting to it at night, and they were nowhere to be found during the day. We will probably not be back for this reason though.
The campgrounds are located on Sullivan Creek Rd that runs along Sullivan Creek. There over 30 sites along the river over several miles. Some of them do not have numbers. All the sites are first come and are Free
We camped at site #7￼ over Memorial Day weekend.
At the site there was a bear box and a fire ring with a moveable grill cover. Some of the sites do have bathrooms. However, we didn’t have one so make sure to bring the appropriate toilet supplies. The size of our site could fit two Rv’s and several tents (Our pop up tent trailer is 25ft). The site has a lot of shade so depending on the time of year make sure to bring the weather appropriate clothing. During our stay it got very cold and we needed to use our heater.
The river is about 35 yards from the site and the dirt road is about 20 yards from the main Camping area.
Dogs do not have to be on leash. However, this time of the year the river was cold and very fast and if your dog is not trained using a leash or tether system for safety would be beneficial.
There are several hiking/game trails you can walk or drive too. Sullivan lake is right down the road about a 5 minute drive you can access additional hiking trails.
Firewood is not provided so make sure to purchase prior and/or bring a ax to cut up the wood that has been left behind.
Overall we loved this area and will be going back this summer when it’s warmer and the river is safe enough to swim with our dogs:)
Here is the exact coordinates of the site #7
Nice location away from people but most all the sites are close to the dirt road and was woken up a couple of times by the sound and headlights of vehicles. But all in all well kept areas (some garbage left by previous campers, just packed it out with mine). Did have a late night bear visitor but was camping in my van so not too concerning. Very little fallen wood for fire, lots of kindling or if you want there is lots of logs in the creek.
I found this awesome little campground on my way to Sullivan Lake from Metaline Falls.
It is just off the main road, next to Sullivan Creek. It is fully a dispersed group of sites so no trash, water, toilet, or any amenities. There is an information sign and several rock rings for fires. This is my kind of site, just throw your tent up where ever and go fish or hike.
The trees are fairly dense so the whole place is well shaded. Sullivan Creek is right there! Sullivan Lake is just a few miles to the east. With Metaline falls a few to the west, there are shops, eteries, and evan a movie theatre close by.
All in all a great place to stay a couple of nights.
