Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Slide Creek Campground is as primitive as it gets. It's just off the road leading to Strawberry Campground, the main entry point into the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness. A less popular entry trail, the Slide Creek Connector Trail, starts from here and leads into the wilderness as well.

The campground has three primitive car and tent sites. Each has a picnic table, a fire pit, and little else. There is no camping or overnight fee at the campground, and it's unlikely you'll be sharing it with anyone else. This makes it a good alternative to camping at Strawberry Campground if you are comfortable going without a vault toilet to use. The campground is open as long as the road into it is accessible. Snowpack is common in the area from late fall through late spring.
