Decent Rustic Getaway

We took our 16 foot Basecamp up to Beverly Campground for the Labor Day weekend. There were two other trailers and 2 to 3 tent campers the whole weekend. The campground is small, rustic, and dusty this time of year, but a good bet for a last minute getaway.

The gravel road up to the campground is narrow and severely wash-boarded. Made towing a trailer a slow go. The campground has 14 sites, a pit toilet with 2 stalls, no water, no trash receptacle. Once we got to the campground, we struggled at first to find a site that would accommodate more than a car and tent. The sites along the road are open, in full sun, and dusty as they are along the main gravel road. The side of the loop along the North Fork of the Teanaway River has much better tree coverage and seems to sit lower and below the road dust.

We ended up choosing site 12. The river was across the campground road from us. If we could have fit in site 10, that would have been my fist choice as it has direct river access. Our site was big, had good tree cover and hammock spots, but enough area to sit in the sun too. The weather was perfect! Breezy, around 75 degrees.

Picnic tables, fire pit, and close proximity to hiking and mountain bike trails. One downside is the bees/wasps. They were mostly nonexistent until we started to cook or eat something, then they were all over us. Not interested in us, just our food. Might be a bummer with kids.

We had a nice time. It was quiet and a good last minute getaway for a long weekend.

  • Site 12 was large enough for truck and 16 foot trailer.  The rest of the site was below the parking pad
  • North Fork Teanaway River.  Right behind site 10.
  • On the left side, 4 miles up FS Rd 9737
  • Fun riding our bikes around
  • Site 12 had good shade and hammock spots.  The yellow tent across the road is site 10 on the river.
