All roads that lead to Buckeye Campground also pass the Burger Barn in Bridgeport. Anytime is a good time for an everything-on-it burger, wrapped in wax paper, at the outside tables of this ageless monument to roadside dining. Historic Bridgeport’s Burger Barn is a famous relic of Americana. One assumes that the lean, tasty burger meat comes from close relatives of the sleek cattle grazing in the knee-deep grass around town. After all, this is cattle country. In Bridgeport, the heart of the Old West steadily beats.

I really cant' agree with much stated on your preview. The location and scenery are beautiful, no question about that. However, the bears are a huge problem that are really understated in any of the information available online. We stayed at Dorst during the month of 7/08; not only did we have bears in our campsite every night (we followed all rules regarding food storage and trash), but there was a mountain lion in the area that was spotted every day during our stay...so rangers told us to keep our kids in our campsite and not let them explore near it. The bears are such a nuisance at night! Don't plan on sleeping a lot. Too bad, beautiful location.

I can not appropriately rate this trail because I only camped on this sight. However, we did encounter an awesome sight on our way to the Horse Corral Pack Station. There is are two waterfalls along a one-way road to the corral hugging a wall and tipping over a cliff. The second set waterfalls was where we were. A little rock climbing and a little river crossing and a lil' hiking brought us to a glorious view of a series of natural made pools of granite. WOW!!!! Be sure to go horseback riding at the Horse Corral and take a refreshing cold dip in to the water to clean yourself off from all the dust accumulation on your skin. EWE!
