A few things to keep in mind: when you’re planning your stay at Pumice Flat Group Campground, remember that you will be charged a Forest Service access fee in addition to the campground’s nightly fee. Also note that dogs must remain leashed at all times. In the early to middle summer, mosquitos can be abundant in the area. The campground rests in an active bear area, so make sure food is stored and disposed of properly.
