Justrite Campground and Paradise Campground are located along Mann Creek and are only a couple hundred yards apart. Justrite comes first and has 4 campsites. One is across the creek and you get to it by crossing a wooden foot bridge. The outhouse is also across the creek but is up the hill a bit. Paradise Campground has 2 campsites, both along the creek with the road right next to them. It also has an older outhouse and has a hand-pump equipped well for water. The area is forested in the valleys with open hillsides above and on southern exposures. This area provides excellent habitat for deer and elk.
