Between 6/29/2014 and 7/9/2014 the Forest Service has authorized a non-commercial gathering at West Branch campground. Please be advised that the campground may be very full during this time.
During the Great Depression the Civilian Conservation Corps built a camp here for the crews building the Greyback Road. Later it became a fire guard station and camp for fire crews and finally a public campground. The 10 family campsites are scattered along the West Branch of Indian Creek. There is lots of shade and camping guidebooks refer to it as quiet, secluded and tranquil.
