If you head south from Big Lake on FR 24 you will, after 12 miles, run into Buffalo Crossing on the East Fork of the Black River. There are several campgrounds located on this stretch of the river and Buffalo Crossing is the most open of them all. Larger RV's can easily fit, but there are no hookups or dump station. You will have to go to Big Lake to reach a dump station.

Fishing on the East Fork has its rewards. This is fly fishing heaven. Rainbow, brook and brown trout can be easily caught. an 11 pound 7 ounce rainbow was caught here in 2003 just above the Aspen Campgrounds. Occasionally you might catch an Apache trout (noted by its green scales) or a smallmouth bass that might work its way up the river during the summer months.

The restrooms are the vault type and are handicap accessible.

Directions

From Big Lake entrance head south (the road will turn to dirt here) 0.7 miles along Three Forks Road and turn right at FR 249E. Head down 249E for about 0.8 miles and turn south onto FR24 and travel 10 miles to the 4 way intersection (the river will be on your left) and cross the bridge about 150 yards straight ahead of the intersection and turn left onto Buffalo Crossing Campground Road.
