Campground Map

Historial Note: Bedrock Campground is located near the start of the 2003 Clark Fire. Approximately 50% of the imposing Douglas-fir and cedar were burned in the fire. All of the understory was burned over. This campground was completely restored for the 2005 summer season. The dead trees were removed, the campsites were restored, toilets were reconstructed, and the area revived.
