Airplane Flat Campground is one of those campgrounds described as dispersed. The name comes from an old plane crash in the past. You will need to be self contained including bringing your own water when you come back to this out of the way campground.

The road in is a dirt road that can be a little washboardy in places. Take extra care when heavy rain is expected.

There are vault style restrooms on site.

The campground is set among a thick stand of ponderosa pines, white and douglas firs, and is a very short walk to Canyon Creek (fly and lure fishing only), a trout creek that is stocked from the Canyon Creek Hatchery just a couple hundred yards up the road. The hatchery has self guided tours running throughout the week until 4 p.m. If you have kids, this is something that you take them to see, the Fish range from fry to 24" plus

 

When I made my way back into Airplane Flat, a fisherman had caught a couple of nice 11 - 12 inch rainbow trout, perfect pan size.

You will need to bear-proof your camp here as the local wildlife includes black bear, elk, javelina, mountain lion, turkey and deer. Also, there is no trash service here so you will need to practice PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT! There are trash bins at Colcord Ridge Campground which you will pass on your way out to the main road.
