Lovely, quiet campground in an amazing location, tucked in a little valley six miles south of Winnemucca. You can hike up,up,up the creek, or hike up the side if the hill for an epic view north to the Jackson Mountains.

Pleased that this is open, it was closed for the government shutdown last October. The spots at the end of the road are nice because you're in the aspens net to the creek. Those seemed gloomy today, so I chose a spot further down, in the open next to the bathroom with an excellent panoramic view of the huge Winnemucca Valley.

The road is quite busy on Sunday morning.
