The trail ambles up and down as it parallels the creek and will cross yet another bridge in due course. At the end of this particular crossing, the path levels out and travels through tent pads that lie beside and away from the creek. As much as this may appear to be a campground, do not be fooled; this is not it. Keep on the trail for a bit of an uphill climb and you will run into a sign that sends you straight to the campground with only 400 m remaining.
The campground occupies both banks of a feeder stream that helps fill the waters of Numa Creek. There are bear lockboxes, outhouses, eating areas and campsites on both sites, establishing quite a unique setup. Metal bear boxes replace traditional bear poles due to the increased frequency of Ursus horribilis traffic in the area. Numa Creek rushes in from the south and the tributary joins it just south of the campground.
Day trips beyond the campground include Numa Pass, Tumbling Pass and Floe Lake. All of these side trips constitute significant elevation gain, with moderate distances. The Rockwall Trail is just 430 m beyond the campground. Numa Pass is 7.4 km south of the intersection, climbing 833 m from Numa Creek Campground, and Floe Lake is 2.6 km from the pass. The route to Floe Lake drops by 348 m. By contrast, Tumbling Pass, 5.3 km north of the intersection, has an elevation gain of 719 m. Either venture is worthy of the effort but quite exhausting. Or you could just sit in the campground and listen to the streams.
