Last Chance Campground is located on the west shore of Goose Creek 2.2 miles north of Hwy 55 on Last Chance Rd. The area is covered with a muture forest including a great deal of undergrowth and is set on a rolling hillside. 1.5 miles of Last Chance Road is narrow with few pull outs. Use caution when pulling your RV to the campground.
Campsites: There are 20 single campsites and 3 double sites. Each are equipped with a picnic table and fire ring with attached grate. Campsites 5 and 6 appear to be the most popular as they are situated right on Goose Creek.
Host on Site: There is normally a host but there wasn't one at the time of my visit.
Water: There are 2 wells, one pressurized and one has a hand pump.
Garbage Services: None, please pack out your garbage.
Electricity Available: No.
Restroom: There are 2 vault style outhouses, one located in the lower middle part which needed a couple repairs. The other was at the upper end near the trail. Both were reasonably clean.
Handicap Accessible: With paved driveways and roads, as well as handicap equipped outhouses, Last Chance Campground is handicap accessible.
Firewood: You will need to bring your own firewood as there was none at the time of my visit.
Pets: I didn't see any sign about pets so I would expect you will need to keep your pet on a leash.
Picnic Area: There is no designated picnic area but there are primative campsites below the campground along Goose Creek where one could have a picnic or sneak into an empty site for a while.
Recreation: While camping in Last Chance Campground you can play horseshoes in the group area or take a hike up Goose Creek to Goose Creek Falls. I would love to hike to the falls to take some pictures. Huckleberries grow in this area and there are roads to explore on your four wheeler or Razor.
Fishing: There are trout in Goose Creek.
Wildlife: One would expect to see many species of birds and small mammals as well as deer in these woods. However, you could see elk, moose, black bear and wolves.
