|On my way to Staircase, there were several times I wondered if I was still on the right road. After you leave Highway 101, most
of the 15.8 miles is a two lane blacktop that wanders through the forest, there are several side roads and not many signs to direct
you. The final 4 miles are gravel (see photo bottom left and center), It's perfectly passable - few potholes - a lot of washboard -
then you see the sign that reads something like "ONE LANE ROAD AHEAD - WATCH FOR FALLING ROCKS AND TREES".
You are now officially off the grid. No cell service, no service of any kind, hope you brought everything you need for your stay
because your not going to buy it here. Once you reach the park, the road is paved again. Don't let this scare you away, Staircase
is a great campground with a lot of hiking trails. Just be prepared.
|have just enough parking for a car, others are big enough for anything you can get here. Sites 1 thru 11 and
some of the walk-in site have a good view of the river. Note - our map reflects the re-numbering of sites in
2013, a number of sites on the south side of the loop were washed out and closed.
Sites 12 to 16 are walk-in sites.
