Blue Lake Creek Campground is a small campground just off Forest Road 23. The campground itself is located in a small hardwood stand surrounded by conifers. Sites are typically open and grassy. This campground is popular with Off Highway Vehicle users and can become noisy when trail bikes come and go. Valley Trail #270 can be accessed from the campground. This trail is a heavily used motorized trail. The High Log Trail #295 is directly across from the campground. This hiker only trail is only 0.3 miles long and drops down to a nice pool on the Cispus River.
