A serene area that sees little traffic, just a short distance south of Buttermilks Main. Named after Dale Bard and his title campsite, Dale's Camp is a perfect destination when the boulders of Buttermilks Main are crowded with vacationers. Many good problems still have grain issues but will clean up with time, and good solid patina is still easy to find on the boulders that surround the centralized Dale's Dome.
From Buttermilk Road after 3 miles or so, make a left onto a dirt road after a short straight-away and at the start of a right curve, which is also 200 feet past a first road, also on the left (about .4 miles before 'Buttermilks Main'). Follow the road which becomes bumpy and rocky until you reach a creek crossing after about a half mile. Depending on your vehicle and the flow of the creek, back up and park then hike up the road, or cross the creek and continue for another 1/4 mile to the parking area on the right in the pine trees.
