Three miles southwest of Dixie Town, which has its own airstrip, this Forest Service strip is in a wooded valley next to Crooked Creek. It usually is pretty smooth, but rodents are known to dig where they shouldn't.

There are no camping amenities at the airstrip, but there is a developed campground one half mile down Crooked Creek. Trout fishing usually is good in Crooked Creek.
