I think this map as shown on recreation.gov is wrong. I think the sites on the right side of the loop are all even numbers, and shown on the wrong side of the road.

I just spoke with a forest service gal who claims it's correct (that conversation didn't end well) and getting through to recreation.gov is near impossible. Does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of this campground?

Do the numbers really matter?

So I guess you're not familiar with it.

I've never been there, I normally look at the satellite view of a new campground to get an idea of the layout.

Devils canyon campground

Then on recreation.gov list all the campsites, it will sometimes include photos of the campsites.

Devils Canyon Campsites

Comparing the photo of the campsite to the satellite view will often clarify things.

Thanks Gary, but I've seen that.

The problem is the numbers are on the wrong side, which makes it very confusing if you want a site on a particular side.

You can check me out on this if you would.....Notice how google maps shows all the sites on the east side of the road are pull throughs, and all the ones on the west are back ins. That doesn't jive with the placement of the numbers. For instance, site 11, on the east side, shows as a back-in on the reservation site.

First off - The "new" recreation.gov maps are a joke. Usually fairly worthless. It's pure luck if they even follow the roads in the campground.

Try this link, then scroll down to the photo section. There is a photo of the campground map sign.

Looks like you are correct that the map is wrong.

Also, you can check out the site photos.

Once again, it looks like you are correct, and the map is wrong.

The maps provided by Recreation.gov are just wretched.
