After a couple of hours we decided to walk back to the campsite with high hopes that all the cars would be gone, but were disappointed they were not. Josh wanted to pack up and find a more secluded site, so by 3:30 we were on the road again, looking for yet another camp site. We continued down Lime Creek Road which had several other dispersed sites along the road, but none with great views like our earlier site. We ended up camping north of Silverton in a campground with only one other vehicle in a very secluded site next to the river.
After having a difficult time the whole trip finding secluded campsites, I'd love to hear from someone locally who has some insight on a great campground or national forest dispersed sites with amazing views. With so many national forest access choices and no familiarity with the area, it makes it very difficult to choose a road to find a campsite.
