Buckeye Camp sits in a large meadow rimmed with oaks and pines in the mountainous interior of the Silver Peak Wilderness. The camp has a developed spring, picnic bench, and a rock fire pit under the canopy of an immense bay tree with expansive overhanging branches. The scenic but strenuous trail up to the camp begins from the abandoned Salmon Creek Ranger Station and climbs the exposed coastal slopes to sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Salmon Creek Falls. The path weaves in and out of several small canyons with shaded oak groves and passes an ephemeral 30-foot waterfall.
