Situated within a shady, mature forest, Puma is the last developed camp along Forest Service Road 18 in the Fall Creek drainage. This 11 site campground is popular with families and you can expect heavy usage on summer weekends.
Fall Creek offers a cool way to escape the summer heat, and the nearby Fall Creek National Recreation Trail provides hikers with additional adventures along the drainage.
