Log Gulch Recreation Site
The Log Gulch Recreation Site provides visitors with 70 campsites with a seven-day stay limit. All but two of the campsites can accommodate RV or tent camping (or a combination of both); two campsites are tent-only sites. While tent camping is available at all campsites, only a limited number have grassy or optimally flat tent camping surfaces. Campsites are primitive, without hookups, but each campsite does have a fire pit and picnic table. Potable water is accessible at various locations throughout the area. Note that quiet hours are 0 p.m.-7 a.m. No generator use is allowed during this time. Do not camp outside numbered sites. Camp hosts or staff members are typically available onsite seven days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
This site has a loading dock with a boat ramp on each side. Two docks with boat slips are available on a first come, first served basis. Boat slips are included in the camping/day use fee. A fish cleaning station is also available 7 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.
The recreation site also has a beach with an enclosed swimming area, available Memorial Day through Labor Day (no lifeguard on duty). Restrooms are available throughout the site, and the restroom closest to the beach has a changing room.
Two ramada shelters are available for public use. The upper ramada is available if group reservations are not already in effect. The lower ramada is available on a first come, first served basis. Call the Butte Field Office for reservation details. Hiking trails are accessible from the park.
The campground's surface is hard-packed, facilitating travel by people who use wheelchairs or have impaired mobility. Pathways paved in asphalt lead to the six shared accessible vault toilets. Potable water hydrants, positioned at an accessible height on concrete pads, are located throughout the campground.
The pathways leading to the beach and boat ramp are paved, with a manageable grade. There are four accessible parking spaces near the boat dock. The first finger and last two fingers of the dock are wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs.
The contact station is accessible for people who use wheelchairs, with adjacent accessible parking.
Service dogs are permitted but must be on a leash or under voice control.
Information about individual campsites:
- Two campsites, 47 and 49, are designated as accessible on the reservation system because they are adjacent to the accessible ramada that is included in any reservation of these two sites. The ramada's inclusion mean that campsites 47 and 49 carry a higher fee than the other sites.
- All sites at the campground have standard picnic tables that can accommodate people in wheelchairs at each end. However, the tables and associated grill rings are on travel pads.
- Each campsite has its own parking spot.
