Great BLM campground with fire rings, water and amazing scenery. Located where the North Platte river cuts through sagebrush country, the hills and peaks resembling prehistoric boulders… in the middle of ranch country, the drive in takes you all the way to the end of the road. Just keep going until you can’t go anymore. The road is in good condition. There’s cattle, horses and plenty of pronghorn wandering about. The sites each have a couple picnic tables. Fire rings have cooking grates. And the well pump has a crank for easy use. 1 vault toilet. There’s a boat ramp for the numerous oar-float boats and rafts going in and out. Down stream is treasure island… another campground located outside Saratoga’. Upstream within a half mile is the coral creek campground. Days were warm but the nights cooled off considerably. It was the 4th of July and more than half the sites were available.
