rustic camping with access to ohv trails

A popular camping area among OHV users.

This camping area is extremely popular with OHV users, and is also used as a one night option for paddlers looking to put in the next morning. While there are great views of the river and the cliffs above, this is not the right spot if you are looking for a quiet, secluded campsite.

Construction is currently underway to make improvements to the rustic camping areas and will continue until fall 2023. This is a phased construction process, and visitors are advised to refer to on-site signage regarding areas open for camping. Visitors should obey all signage and stay out of the construction areas.
