This facility holds up to 25 people and has platforms for tents and parking spurs for trailers up to 23 feet long. There are accessible toilets, fire circles, potable water, and a small corral here, making it the pawfect place for a primitive getaway. In the area, you'll have access to activities like fishing, biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing. You can reserve the group site for your visit.
This campground is the only site in the area that accommodates horses. You'll be camping by the water under limited shade here. Once you set up your base, take some time to go exploring. There's a puptastic hiking or horseback riding route that starts between this spot and the Sugarloaf Campground. Follow the 26-mile South Fork Trail loop that heads through high alpine forest and past meadows that come alive with wildflower blooms in the summer. You'll enjoy scenic views of the area's mountain ranges when you get to clearings. There are connector trails that you can use to shorten your trek out here. Back at camp, wade out in the water and try some fly fishing for trout. At the end of your day, relax around the fire and gaze at the stars.
This national forest facility is open to dogs that are on-leash. Take Fido on your wilderness excursions in the area, but observe standard "leave no trace" practices by carrying waste bags to scoop and carry out your pooch's messes.
