Nice off-season dispersed stay!

Spent three nights and enjoyed it quite a bit! Was extremely quiet during our stay, but seems to be a popular spot during the high season. Verizon service was spotty but we occasionally had reception. Road in was fair, rough at times, but doable in our low-clearance rig. Nice views from our spot, but the river was dry due to the on-going drought. Would stay again!

Beautiful & Secluded

There is a campground but there is also dispersed free camping all along the lake. This is a beautiful place. Bring Bug Spray
