Upper Buck Creek is your destination for rustic seclusion in a high mountain setting.

This quiet forest camp is a great place to relax, fish, walk along the creek, and enjoy nature.

Upper Buck Creek features five campsites with picnic tables, and fire rings, and two vault toilets. Remember to park your vehicle at least 200 feet from the creek. 

There are no garbage receptacles, so remember to “pack it in, pack it out.” There no potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water.
