Goose Creek is conveniently located between historic Bath and the original Washington.
A primitive family campground is located between Goose and Flatty creeks. Twelve well-spaced tent sites amid towering pines include vehicle parking, tables and fire pits. Toilet facilities and water spigots are available along the campground road. Occupancy is limited to no more than eight people per site.
