    Only campground I know of near the north fork is French Creek. About a half mile east of the Boulder River turn on a gravel road. The road forks where it meets the highway and there's a bus stop there. The campground is small and maybe a mile from the highway. Not on the Stilly, but there is a campground at the mouth of the Whitechuck a few minutes south of Darrinton.

    French Creek Camground is on the Boulder River about two miles off the North Fork of the Stilly. Head up Forest Road 2010 between Hazel and Fortson. I think there's also a campground on the headwaters of the North Fork above Fortson.

    I might be old---but I'm good

    It's a ways to the river,but there's a road that goes thru that campground to private homes beyond there. There is access to Squire creek there,but I don't know if you can access the Stilly from there.

    Now if you go to the upper N/fork there are lots of places to camp.But then you would have a drive ahead of you.

    There is a little campground where Deer Creek enters the North Fork. It's back behind the fire station and slightly to the west behind a home. Do you know if it is public? If so, do you know the name of it and how to make reservations? Thanks.
