A nice spot, albeit a little pricey

We stopped here for the night on our way to Kentucky. The campground is nice and the host was very friendly and attentive. There were showers, but when we were there there was a problem with the well, and we were advised to be careful about how much water we used. 

I have no complaints but that for just tent camping, the price seemed a little high. Now we could have found something cheaper, but I do feel it's a bit higher than what I typically pay for sites similar to this. 

At the end of the day, this was a nice spot, close to some trails and it's pretty well taken care of.

Worth The Hike/Bike In

Even on the fourth of July weekend, with every campsite booked, this place was quiet and felt very removed from the beaches several miles north in Virginia Beach. We biked in from Little Island Park. 

From the parking lot to our campsite, it was about 7.5 miles. Some campsites are closer by a couple of miles. We're both in good shape, and on bike we made the trek in less than an hour. I rode my mountain bike, and my wife road her hybrid commuter bike without issue. We brought a collapsible 5 gallon jug that I had to ride back to the visitors center (about 2 miles from our campsite) to fill up. 

It was a fair amount of work, but we took our 9 month old and 2 year old children. We towed them in a trailer and they loved their time at the beach. 

The visitors center is a great spot to stop and rest for a while. It is air conditioned, and they have a small gift shop with cold drinks and ice cream available. 

We were on site 22, which is ocean side, and right up next to 23. They could easily act as companion sites. If you camp on the ocean side, you are permitted to set up your tent on the shore (in  a designated strip) as long as you let them know at the visitors center.

All other campers we met were quiet and friendly. and we really just could not have asked for a better situation. 

This is my kind of day at the beach. I loved it.

Also, pets are allowed, but they are not allowed through Black Bay. You either have to bring them in via boat, or coming up south from North Carolina.

Great Spot in the Middle of Nowhere

Just a few miles out of the small town Lima Montana, this campground sits nestled in the mountains with a beautiful view and very few visitors.

There is a gravel road, which was well kept when we went. We made it fine in our sedan.

The are supposedly 4 sites, but we only noticed 3. We aren't a Friday night up there and we the only ones at the campsite.

There are 2 vault toilets. It looks like there was a pump for water, but it was either broken, or I just don't know how to use it. Be sure to bring water.

The picnic tables are solid and nice. The camp fire rings also come with grills.

Overall, even without running water, we were prepared and had a great, quite, and beautiful stay at East Creek.

A beautiful, quiet spot

We visited here in early June. The forest is beautiful. There are gives off points and aspens, and add you make your way into the forest​ roads, there are Meadows filled with people, white, and yellow wildflowers. This, mixed with the rivers running through the area make a beautiful spot.

The sites here give more privacy than the ones closer to the main road. On our trip there were only two others at the entire campsite, which is well distorted and allows for some privacy and quiet.

The road to get there is dirty/gravel, but we made it fine in our sedan. This is also best country, and for storage is required. They provide a few bear boxes, and keeping food locked up in your car works fine, too.

Awesome Spot, Noisy Neighbors

Driving down to Wolf Flats is beautiful. It is forested with a butte on one side, and the snake river on the other. The campsites are somewhat primitive, but we like that. The location was beautiful and we loved the spot. However, it is a free campsite. This is nice, but I think this tends to bring in rowdy neighbors. Everyone was nice enough, but a group showed up at 9pm blaring music for at least a coiple of hours. I can't say this happens every night, but it did with us. Other than the late night noise, this was an awesome spot.
