Campground Camping

This is a small campground and is best suited for folks with a large trailer or recreational vehicles.  

RV Camping

This is a small campground with a large turn around area, so it is a good place to go if your trailer or recreational vehicle had a hard time fitting other places.  Though the parking area is big enough to accommodate many vehicles please be mindful of other users and do not encroach on their stay.  As with most of the campgrounds on Ochoco National Forest, there are no hook-ups offered here so camping should be self-contained.
