Description

This campground was named after the “Wild Man of the Mountains,” George Pettingill. This early homesteader’s grave is nearby. The campground sits near the banks of Wise River, where it meets Pettengill Creek, a great location for fishing. George Pettingill was something of a hermit, and with only three campsites and ten miles to the nearest town, you can join in this tradition, for a few days at least.
