***NOTICE** All East Fork Recreation Area campgrounds are open with limited services now that concession operation has ceased for the season and until weather conditions prohibit access. Several toilets will be open and stocked in each campground, however there is no water available, no hosts are on-site, and there is no trash service – Please, Pack It In, Pack It Out!
Racoon Campground was developed to replace some campsites that were located too close to the creek. The East Fork meanders through the forested valley shaded by tall ponderosa pines and bordered by grasses, alders, and streamside hardwoods.
