Report: Directions are not accurate. 10+ miles until you get to national forest, everything up to that point is private land. This was an early trip 4-24-08, and the upper part of the road was closed, however, we only saw one campsite near the ranger station. No obvious fishing areas. We ended up camping up toward red feather lakes - free sites - a total of 30 I think.
Conditions: Dirt road all the way, wet.
