Are you looking for an overlander's paradise camping spot? This is it if you are looking for your own private fishing and camping spot on public land. Follow this trail to Josephus Lake and Josephus Lake Camp Ground. The campground is almost 20 miles in and situated on the lake. The campground is all primitive camping, with several dispersed camping spots along the way. The road is a rocky gravel road with some embedded rock. There are several steep switchbacks with an overall elevation gain of 2400 feet. The entrance to the campground has a deep water crossing. The crossing has a hard bottom but could challenge low clearance vehicles.
