This area is Open
 

South west of South Fork off highway 160

The campground is a single loop in a grove of spruce trees surrounding an open grass field. The campground has a lush tropical feeling but elevation keeps the temperature cool. The two Tucker Ponds are across the road from the entrance to campground and appear to be a good family fishing experience. The Tucker Ponds are about 10 acres each. FISHING - Rainbow trout (stocked)
