Grayback Gulch Campground

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.

Campsites: There are 2 double camping sites, 16 single camping sites, and 2 group camping sites. The group sites should be able to accommodate 100 - 150 people. Single sites have a picnic table, fire ring with grill and lantern pole. The doubles just have two driveways.

Water: There is drinking water from two newer hand crank pump equipped wells.

Garbage Services: Yes!

Restroom: There are two log cabin vault style toilets.

Handicap Accessible: Grayback Gulch Campground is handicap accessible.

Pets: Pets on a leash only.

Fishing: Trout fishing is available in Mores Creek.

George and Terry:

Beautiful campground. Nice hiking trail up the hill then down along the creek. The sites are paved and pretty level with plenty of distance between. We will definitely return.If you need hosts next year, let us know!
