  • Love this place. We camp here as a halfway point between deep hole and sandy bottom campground on the river. Quiet and usually have one side of the river to ourselves. Long road getting in and out but def worth it! Beautiful water, fun bridge, and you can wake up and catch trout right there!
  • Great experience! This is a gravel road that in places a regular vehicle is going to spin it's tires. I am guessing the park service will correct and grade out the rough spots. This road can be intimidating at first. Keep going you will not get stuck, unless the park service does not grade out the rough spots then it could be challenging for low clearance vehicles. Once you arrive parking is limited, just don't go at a busy time. View is awesome and bridge is fun. Pretty cool side trails down to river. Check them out. If you are in to hiking, park along the road and walk in. Just remember it's three miles each way. We saw several hikers today. I think our next trip will be walking in.
