So, you like the look of the Amazon but not that sweaty, sticky air? Tucker Ponds Campground has the look of the tropics with the feel of that fresh mountain cool. Fish in creeks, ponds, lakes or streams for some delicious trout, then enjoy it under a lushly shaded picnic table. Snowmobile trails and cross-country skiing opportunities also make it an awesome winter getaway.

2020, June. This campgrounds is closed and not maintained. They do not have a water permit or a host I was told by rangers. Covid 19 contributed. There is however, plenty of Dispersed camping the couple of miles in. Meadows or forest. The dirt road is decent and I saw some fifth wheels around. Lots of off roaders too. Pit toilet and parking at the two lovely fishing ponds.

My campspot for the night. About a quarter mile from the ponds. Road inTucker Ponds Campground
