The gate off the main road is closed. According to the camp host at Sunburst nearby, it was initially closed for COVID, then finally reopened in early May, only to be shut down within days after being inundated with homeless that were trashing it. Sunburst is still $15/night, and they have wifi if you ask nicely, since there no cell service in this bucket of wet rocks.

Report Check-In

Gate closed and locked. According to the camp host at nearby Sunburst campground, it was initially closed for COVID, then winter season '21-22, then finally reopened only to be inundated within days by homeless that were overstaying and trashing it. So they closed it.

Nearby Sunburst is still $15/night, has water, firewood, and WiFi (since there's no cell service in this wet-rock bucket) if you ask nicely.

Report Check-In

The GPS coordinates are wrong. Don’t rely on them. Also note the FS rd referenced does not open until sometime in May. It was closed when we tried to go there. On the plus side, there is a very nice paid site called Sunburst just before the turn. We stayed overnight for $7.00 w/a national parks pass.

Report Check-In

Road crosses a stream pretty early on and many of the spaces are pretty washed out and muddy at the moment. Big storms due later the day I visited and I didn’t want to get stuck in the mud or be unable to cross the stream in case of a flash flood so I opted for sunburst campground which is immediately before the turnoff for the dispersed camping spots. the campground is $15 per night or $7 with a national parks pass.

Report Check-In

Another classic NC dispersed side of the road camp spot. There is a nice big spot by the river right at the beginning of the road but as it was occupied we kept driving up. Technically I don’t think this (coordinates) is an official spot but nice big space off the road. There is also a paid campground ($13) right before pulling onto the forrest road to the north.
