Description

This sizable reservoir has small established campgrounds on the east and west sides. I opted for wild camping on the south side, on the bluff overlooking the lake. The campgrounds have toilets and a few picnic tables. The wild camping has no facilities. Whichever you choose, it's free!

Fantastic spot! Quiet and beautiful with lots of room to stretch your legs! Be aware if rain is in the forecast it will be a sticky muddy mess. Be sure to plan your stay accordingly. Great T-Mobile, zero Verizon.

Fantastic spot all around! I always stay here when I’m in the area! I have full bars on T-Mobile, 5G. (Check me out on IG: our_heroes_graves)

Report Check-In

Rusty gravel/dirt road in off the highway, at least one other camper here 100’+ away and maybe more around this huge lake. I pulled into the first pull off which has a fire pit and great view. Moderate Verizon cell coverage.

Great place for the night. A few others scattered around the lake. Beautiful sunrise. Stars are unreal at night.

Very beautiful here. Plenty of nice spots. shade is hard to come by. I drove my little Nissan NV200 Van in here and had no problems.

Report Check-In

Nice location even in winter! accessible road and minimal spot in pull-off. fire ring covered in snow. got down to just below zero, but we were warm inside. Full moon made the lake beautiful and it was very quiet here.

Report Check-In

Great views of the resivor and mountains... 1.5 miles of dirt road that is moderately rough. Very quiet.
