Get here early to claim your campsite

West Fork Campground is tucked away in the canyon carved out by the West Fork of the Black River. Camping is free and on a first come first served basis. There are approximately 70 undefined campsites, some which have Adirondack style wooden shelters. Above the campground the forest gets rather thick but in the campground trees are spread out and offer plenty of shade. As you exit the campground, green meadows prevail pretty much all the way to the East Fork of the Black River where the two rivers converge.

Fishing on the West Fork is not as well known as the East Fork, but the solitude you encounter while on the West Fork can be just as rewarding. Expect to catch rainbow, brown, brook and apache trout. the West Fork is an excellent fly fish stream.

If you don't fish, try hiking or mountain biking. There is a trail that leads upriver and down river from the campsite. You might as well bring your fishing gear!

Directions

From Big Lake take F.R. 249E south of Big Lake to F.R. 68 and head south for 10.2 miles to the signed campground entrance. Drive 1.5 miles along the west fork to the campground.
