Fire road entry does not require 4X4, stock truck will be fine. Pay by check in box, about $25 a night. Great river access with no potable water. Sites include fire ring and picnic table. Bring your own firewood. Pit toilets are within walking distance from all campsites. Garbage is onsite which rangers change and clean daily.

I'll never return to this campsite while Guy Chrisos is on duty! I had never been here before but I didn’t expect to be disrespected, harassed & ticketed $150 within the first hour of arrival. He had all kinds of lewd names for the men we were with, he ogled another female friend & I while scolding us for several other outrageous claims. Other groups were found with glass bottles but were NOT ticketed and all we did was pull trash out of the river but hadn't thrown it away yet. Plenty of other nice parks in this area where you don't have to put up with this. I'd never recommend this place to someone I liked with Mr. Chrisos on duty. If you decide to risk it be sure to find & read all signage so you don't end up with a court date.
