The 3 campsites at Skeels' Meadow are along a side road that heads east from Hobbs Road.  All three sites are on a ledge just above the Middle Fork of Coyote Creek in the canyon between Middle Ridge and Blue Ridge.

Skeels' Meadow is a sunny, grassy glade bordered by oaks, California bay laurels, and big-leaf maple trees.  In the spring, the tender green grass and colorful wildflowers make this spot an excellent destination.

The sites are marked with posts. Two of the sites (2 & 3) are tucked under trees along the right side, and are quite shady, and one (#1) is in a sunny spot on the northeast side of the meadow, next to the creek.

You can usually find purifiable water in the nearby creek, even during the summer months.
