A true little green oasis in the Great Basin, sheltered from the wind, and beautiful views up the canyon towards the snowy mountain tops. Be prepared for a long slow drive though. The 12 mile approach from the US-50 is only paved for the first 2 miles, but it is doable with a regular car, just take your time. Not suitable for RV's over 25 feet. Camping is free.

Despite the name the creek is small and hard to fish, due to the lush vegitation surrounding it.
