Williams Hill Recreation Area Reviews & Ratings
Peaceful and beautiful views. No running water, but a bathroom. Good and clean sites. Fairly level ground. Covered picnic area on each campsite.
What a find! 7 campsites on the top of a mountain. Takes an 8 mile ride up a dirt road with about 1500 feet elevation climb. No problem for my 27 foot class C towing a Jeep. One toilet. Nice picnic tables and fire pits. 14 day limit. Views. Hiking. Shooting. If camp sites are full, there are other places nearby you could overnight if needed I think.
What an adventure! This place was well off the beaten path but what a hidden gem! There are 7 sites available, each with a covered picnic table area (with concrete pad) and fire ring. A vault toilet is available. The drive up is an adventure within itself but don’t let that deter you. Waze originally led us to an access gate that doesn’t appear to be in use any longer. I remembered seeing someone post a similar situation so I checked out the map and decided to access Williams Hill via Jolon. Definitely check your GPS and reroute it before you get to the creepy unused access gate - ha. The drive up is via a dirt road that has been very well-kept. A bit bumpy in some areas but that’s to be expected. We did see a pretty large trailer camper on one of the sites, which would have been stressful to drive to me. We arrived in a camper-van and had no problem getting up the dirt road. Two-wheel drive is fine but some of the turns are pretty hair-pin, plus you switchback up, so I’d keep campers as short as possible if you’re towing.
Beautiful views with lots of trails to explore.
Awesome spot! Would go here again in a heart beat!
