Latest Check-Ins

Access this spot going West on I-40. We were coming east and had to drive a few miles past the spot and turn around.
Really beautiful and secluded spot with a creek surrounding 3 sides of you. We have pretty good clearance and didn’t quite make it to the first site (the other sites were blocked by a swollen creek that no truck could cross this time of year), but we found a little flat pull off on the left side of the road in front of some vacant summer cabins. Our pup enjoyed running around in the field in front of the cabins. You really do need serious clearance for this road.

Report Check-In

There’s about 4 established sites with rings along the trail. Anything past this point high clearance 4x4 recommended as the trail changes with the rain fall. Few low water crossings and some rutted out areas. Most camping sites big enough for 2-3 rigs. Site closest to the bus could fit a whole party, up to 5 rigs.

Report Check-In

Primitive camp site. Pack what you need in, pack out what you brought. Close to the creek, with fire ring and a small 'table' attached to a tree. If you plan to take Hurricane Creek trail, high clearance vehicle, good tires and off road skills required. Trail charges from season to season. Last part of trail was extremely washed out and extremely challenging. Typically One Way past camp site - Good Fun Track!

Report Check-In

Clearance became an issue about .2 miles from the GPS pin. Probably under 8 feet tall is ok, but anything taller will have issues with the large low hanging branches. Did not make it to the site.
