Drift Fence Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Drift Fence Campground is situated along the paved Blue Mountain Scenic Byway and is traditionally a hunting camp.  This is a small, rustic site and the short access road is in poor condiiton.  The campground features 6 campsties and 2 vault toilets.  There is no potable water or garbage service, so please pack all garbage out and dispose of it at home.  The surrounding area offers hunting, wildlife and wildflower viewing opportunities, and photography. Fishing is available at several nearby stocked ponds including Twin Ponds where the annual Fishing Derby is held.  If you like to drive, you can pick up the Ukiah-Granite Roadside Geology tour brochure at the Ranger District and take a day trip to Granite.  The Bridge Creek Wildlife Viewing Area (elk) is just a few miles down the road.
