Located at the upper end of Taylor Park amongst pine trees and riparian meadows, Dorchester Campground is great for select recreational opportunities. With a lengthy network of motorized trails from Castle Creek Valley to Taylor Reservoir, the area is an enduro trail and mountain biker’s dream. The fishing here is none too shabby either. Nearby Almont boasts two four-season resorts.

This was a FREE and beautiful campground (which also takes donations) that have the sweetest campground hosts. They stay in the cabin in front to greet, watch over everything, and are super helpful/knowledgeable if you need it. It was comforting to know there was someone else out there too since we were the only ones camping at the time, given its isolation. Its the furthest campground so there's no noise traffic, light pollution, and not very many people, or at least when we went. Our site had bear and moose track marks so that was kinda cool, just remember to lock up your food so they don't get too close! The night sky is also a must see! Overall was a great experience, will be back again soon. :-)
