I've been coming to Brightman Flat since I could walk. Our Fav campsite is the one with the big boulder by the fire pit, about 15 yards from the river, with the out house two campsites to the right (if you're looking out from the boulder toward the entrance driveway) I grew up here. Washing my hair in the freezing Stanislaus, and getting the subsequent brain freeze, unless of course we decided to drive the mile to Dardanelle (Population 2, last time I was there ) and pay 50 cents a minute for hot water.  I enjoyed making dams in the lil creek that runs thru the center of the campground, mostly for moms dishwater. We caught
 
    so many trout!!!  I childhood treasure, can't wait to bring my daughter here. Says Anonymous
