Sometimes you just want to pack up a tent and a sleeping bag and go camping. That’s it. No fussing over fancy campfire dinners or pitching elaborate bug-proof canopies. Just a plain and simple no-frills night under the stars. Lane Creek is perfect for just that. There are seven sites and a toilet situated amongst an open forest of ponderosa pines, so you’ll be able to lift your head at night and see a sky lit up with stars. Although there is hiking nearby, there aren’t really any trailheads or other attractions associated with this spot so you can likely expect a nice and quiet getaway. Sound nice?

Tip: Not far away is the Bear Wallow Interpretive Trail, where you can get wise about the life cycle of the native Steelhead Salmon.
