Dispersed and Primitive Camping

Once upon a time you might not see
another person here, still not many
crowds. The campground is on the
edge of a lava flow, with a wall of lava
about 70' high extending into Davis Lake.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds.

but didn't get any good photos.

You can walk in the lava fields, but be
careful of shifting rocks. It is a good idea
to wear gloves.

Bald Eagle at Wickiup Reservoir
Bald Eagle at Wickiup Reservoir

We have seen several bald eagles in this area.
The biggest bald eagle we ever saw was at the
junction of Road#44 and Road#4260. He was
on the beach and when he spread his wings was
the most incredible sight... must of been an 8-10'
wing span as he stood tall and brave for what
seemed like an eternity.
