There are only three first-come, first-served campsites at Mineral Camp, a historic landmark located at the base of Hardscrabble Grade, once a busy gold mining destination. Now, you can still dig for gold for old time’s sake, but it won’t do you much good; The biggest bonus is the natural beauty of the surroundings lush with ferns, moss, Douglas fir, and other foliage. Basically, if you’re looking for a scenic tour around the woods with a history lesson built in, this fits the bill – just make sure you BYOW, because hiking or hiking isn’t fun when you’re dry.
