This remote campsite by the creek does sound like a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy nature. The fact that it is only accessible by small to mid-size vehicles adds to the secluded and peaceful atmosphere of the area. The forested surroundings and the mountain views make it an ideal spot for nature lovers.

The primitive campsite with its stone fire ring is perfect for those who want to experience camping in its rawest form. The fact that it can accommodate two to three vehicles makes it an ideal spot for a small group of friends or family. Although the site is on a slight incline, it is smooth and should be easy to level out your vehicles.

The location of the campsite is in a pristine valley with very little traffic, which adds to the tranquility of the area. However, the fact that there is no cell service and no Starlink may be a drawback for some visitors who need to stay connected. Nevertheless, for those seeking a relaxing spot to spend a few nights away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this campsite is highly recommended.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
