Name: Grayback Gulch Campground
Grayback Gulch Campground is along the hill above Mores Creek. Many paths and trails are perfect for hiking or for your ATVs. This is a very nicely developed campground. Paved roads throughout and cleared out underbrush along with the pine trees give this campground a civilized look while maintaining the rugged charm of the wilderness. Grayback Gulch is scheduled to have a camp host, however the forest service is having a hard time finding a host this year.
