The site brought this up as free, but it was $10/plot. The plots seemed closer together than I care for, and they were mostly full. I opted to move on... Just wanted to post this in case anyone else was counting on free. Oh, and the hill up is pretty steep. Lots of downshifting. If you park down by the river the scenery is worth looking at, there's a sweet little trail or two.

Fabulous small National Forrest campground
right off the access road, $10 per night. The
views here are stunning with jagged mountains
peaks surrounding you, a raging river only 80 feet from site #2. I'm here early and only two sites are accessible with snow covering the other four. There are bear boxes, picnic tables and fire pits for each site, plus a leveled area for tents. I snuck in here in my 32 foot Skoolie, a bit tricky but doable. The views from my roof top deck are amazing. There's little to no Verizon service, but my Starlink satellite internet is penetrating the trees, at least from site #2. Highly recommended! Bring bear spray. Please carry out all trash, we want these perfect campsite to last forever. Thank you National Forrest service, we sincerely
appreciate your work.
