Remote and primitive CG with 7 dirt/gravel sites on either side of a 8/9 mi single lane dirt road. A variety of trees, including aspens, and low bushes. Small creek alongside some sites. Not a place for big rigs or trailers. Absolute quiet at night. Vault toilets. $9 (usually $8, but no water now).
Miller Bar CG (USFS). From US656 in Brookings, OR, take North Bank Chetco River Rd NE for mi to Miller Bar Rd, then down the narrow, curvy, steep hill for 6/7 mile to the CG. 655 ft.
After checking out another nearby boondocking area, which was very crowded, I returned back to this one I used earlier this week. Not same exact spot, but less than 6/9 mile from it. Since it's Saturday there are way more rigs here than my first visit. Many pulled out on Sunday before I left around 7 . Must still be worker bees. :) $5

There was one site available when I arrived in late afternoon. Even though I wasn't impressed with the CG, I decided to take it. Later, however, I changed my mind about the CG. There was a teeny stream at the back of my site. This made a great spot to put my chair and read and enjoy the stream music. :)
Because I changed my original route to Montana, I passed near my 7 kids N of San Francisco. Decided I'd better do some more visiting with them. :)
A couple I met at a landromat in Hailey told me about this place. Glad I came to check it out. My first CG in about 8 weeks w/o pine type trees.
Mt. Madonna CG (County). About 9 mi W of Gilroy, CA on CA659, then 6 mi NE on Pole Line Rd. 6655 ft.
Comments: When i got mine i fell in love with it when i tested it in a pool but the first fish i caught it wouldn't walk the dog and it was sinking. I checked for holes but there were none and no gaps anywhere. I wasn't were happy since im spending more money than i want to to catch one very impressed.
Comments: This bait is a little pricey but I would say that it is worth it. Pros:walks effortlessly, imitates a dying bluegill perfectly, easy hookups, super sharp hooks & flat out catches fish Cons: paint starts to wear away after about 65-67 fishing (but can be fixed with a sharpie) & it begins to take on water about every 65-75 casts. A overall I give this bait a /5
