Default clear creek mgmnt area camping

Has anyone been camping or hiking in the Clear Creek blm area in last year. I asked in Hunting and got little response. Wondering if rain has helped green area up and any water sources now viable.

Yup. Back in 1977 when I went to camp with my 6th grade class.

Brings back memories.

Sorry, nothing much else to add.

I've camped there back in the day when people use to be able to ride their dirt bikes. Great riding, BTW. Ton of trails and lots of land to see (a plane crash site too!), but have not been there since the riding ban due to asbestos. Camping for me was always done in a motorhome parked of the road, so no help from me there, unfortunately. Again, from a dirt riding perspective, the place was awesome as there are so many great trails snd asbestos makes fir some excellent traction especially with a little rain.

Two things about the area.

#1 they opened it back up to trucks. Since you don't have to hike in that's going to put pressure on the very little fauna that was starting to come back.

#2 4 year drought. There hasn't been any wildlife larger than a finch there for some time.

Nice place to camp, but there was a reason you did not get any response from hunters. What little there was is re-eliminated by open roads and 4 years of no water.

Was there in Dec. it was my 1st time so don't have any comparison, to prior. creek beds were still dry, but everything was muddy from the recent rain from that month.

However, we only drove through Clear Creek area, we camped by Condon Peak campsite.

There's a map there, it'll show a spot near the campsite, "Pigs Wallow"

it was muddy but no pond, saw some tracks but it was old. It was right next to the main road, Coalinga.

We didn't see no pigs at Condon Peak...we did see some feral pigs off of Coalinga, but they were running through private property.

Where are you getting your campfire permit? Is it the one where you have to fill out your info? I was able to get a campfire permit last year, someone here posted it, didn't need to fill out your info. It was pre-signed by a ranger...i think, in pdf format.

you have a new link for the pre-signed campfire permit? If we're talking about the same one from last year, i think it's expired already. Will need another one for this year.

Access through New Idria is open again . New Idria itself, the actual Superfund site remains a protected site and can not be molested or you can be punished federally.

I advise you NOT to drink that orange water in the creek at the entrance of the abandoned town.
