We had checked out three other camps in the area before trying this one. They were all full or lacked phone service which was necessary for me to submit some files.
We rolled through Tie City about 3:00 on a Friday and got the second to last spot left. It was a great spot. Not sure why it had been passed over, but we enjoyed it.
Saw two deer at the check in point. Friendly neighbors. Didn’t seem like many were “living there” like a lot of dispersed camps we drove through.
Lots of bear warnings, so we took lots of precautions. If they passed through in the night we didn’t notice.
AT&T and Verizon service were solid...actually have line of sight to a tower.
It is close to the interstate and you could hear road noise, though I didn’t notice it until after dark. Wasn’t bad for me. Didn’t cause trouble for any of us sleeping.
Upon leaving I saw some had setup camp at the overflow parking for the trail. Not sure it is intended for that, but in a pinch I guess they made do.
