Campground Overview

Natural Features:
The campground is situated on the banks of the Mad River, at an elevation of 2,385 feet. Ponderosa pines tower over the campground. A large fire burned the area around the campground in 1992, but many young trees now cover the forest floor. The surrounding forest provides excellent habitat for a wide range of wildlife. Visitors may catch glimpses of mule deer, elk, bald and golden eagles and a variety of woodpeckers and owls.

The campground offers great trail opportunities for hikers, horseback riders, mountain bikers and motorcyclists. Forest Service Trail 1049 is nearby and accesses a large multiple-use trail system.

The campground offers one group site that can accommodate up to 33 people. Picnic tables and campfire circles are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water.

Trash collection bins are not provided. Visitors are asked to bring garbage bags and pack out all trash.
