A playfield with a horseshoe pit is located t the end of camping sites alongside the creek. All of the campsites are wooded.

Each site is equipped with picnic table, fire ring, tent pad, and lantern pole. There is no water, electric or dump station available in the campground. All of the sites are within easy walking distance of the creek.

Use caution at the low water ford across the creek at the campground entrance. Do not cross if flooded. Low lying areas are prone to flooding, so be alert for flooding when driving, camping or crossing streams in this area. 

Campfires are permitted in fire rings only. Make sure fires are out before retiring at night or when leaving your campsite.
