5.5 miles drive up and just off FR203A from the Cherry Creek Road (FR203) intersection and less than one-half mile drive further up FR203A from the Bull Canyon TH is this recommended, but very exposed, high-clearance vehicle, rocky, primitive vehicle and tent campsite (a maximum of 1 to 2 flat ground tent areas with an additional 1-2 vehicle camping areas).

Full day sun and wind exposure at this 5k' elevation campsite area with very scenic 360 degree near and distant Sierra Ancha Wilderness views to help makekup for its lack of other amenities.
