Almost everything you need to know about Bandy Creek is here: Bandy Creek Campground - Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area . Nice campground. Water and electric sites (5 w/50 amp). Site D48 is the nicest of the 50 amp sites. No problem for your rig. Lots of shade. Swimming pool in season. Trails for hiking, atv, bike, and horseback. Best to approach from the west (Jamestown). The Big South Fork River gorge is just east of Bandy with 13% grades and tight switchbacks both down to and up from the river. Not a lot of fun with a big rig. Reserve early as it is a popular campground.

post #2 sums it up very well except for one more detail they didn't mention. watch where you are walking---rattlesnakes are quite common in the campground. and i'll 2nd that you need to come in from the west (jamestown). do not try to come in from the east (oneida). otherwise, a nice campground!!!

Jim, thank you for the informative reply. We are booked for late May and I don't know what is so special about D48 but it booked up as soon as we looked into CG. So we will settle for C32. Again thank you.

nothing in particular is different about either site. i use C32 with my 35' motorhome when i'm there. within walking distance to showerhouse. you should'nt have any problems backing into it. the picture of your Winnie is very similar to what site C32 looks like.

BTW--the showerhouses are kept in spotless condition--some of the cleanest i've ever seen for a national recreation area.


now you've got me wanting to return soon.
