Buffalo Crossing Campground
The East Fork meanders through the forested valley
shaded by tall ponderosa pines and bordered by grasses, alders, and
cottonwoods. Campsites are located a few steps from the stream to
protect the Black River's unique riparian zone, but access to the
river is easy as the undergrowth serves more to enhance the river's
picturesque nature than to obstruct easy passage.
