The 1/2 mile graded gravel road off Hwy 96 to the gravel bar will accommodate self-contained RV's for dispersed camping. There is a gravel road to the water's edge, permanent toilets and ample parking at Ferry Point River Access. In the 1850's this area was a thriving little town with a hotel, dance hall, ferry, store and school. Pack trains came through here from the coast on their way to Scott Valley and Happy Camp. A current California Campfire Permit is required to use a camp stove, barbecue or have a campfire outside of developed areas. Local fire restrictions supersede the campfire permit. Inquire at the Ranger Station before having a fire. Restrictions: Area subject to closure during Karuk Tribal Ceremonies each summer. See list of dates and restrictions. Water and garbage service are not provided. Bring enough water for drinking, cooking and washing as well as extra water to drown campfires each day. Please take all trash, garbage, fish guts and dog droppings with you when you leave. Dogs on leash only. Camping limit 14 days.
