    Default Russian River Campround still open?

    Anyone know if the Russian River Campground is still open at least for drive-in access to the Grayling Parking area?

    I'd like to go down this weekend and fish but hate the long walk if the gate is closed way back at the check-in area. I called the Forest service but they didn't indicate that they knw what was going on down there.

    Default russian river

    I am pretty sure that the gate is open year round, but there is no one working the little booth at the entrance, and the bathrooms are all locked up.

    Default Locked up last couple of years

    Thanks for looking.

    The last several years they have left the main gates open but locked the gate up just past the check in shack so you couldn't drive back into the campground. It is a pretty good walk down to the grayling parking lot from the guard shack as you may recall.

    Default Gate open

    You will find the camp closed, yet the bathroom by the boat launch is open. You may be able to sleep in your car close by. A rough night sleep is worth the rewards. The fishing is still good with silvers putting eggs out to the rainbow and dolly customers. Remember to read the regs before you fish. There have been some big bears around the ferry so be alert but do not let it stop you from exploring.
    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
