Camping near pumphouse NOT on river near the train...

I am looking for camping beta off the beaten path near pumphouse/radium but no where near the train. I know there must be something somewhat remote and peaceful. Will you dare to share?

Follow Trough Road past the turn off for Radium at the top of that climb before the descend to pumphouse there's a jeep trail off to the left if you follow that back there's a few good camping spots. You won't hear any traffic or trains.

One word if you want to camp on the river on Pumphouse: Earplugs
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

There are several great spots along this stretch. Just do us all a favor and bring wag bags or something of the sort.
We've been doing a lot of camping out there this summer and some of our groups best spots have been littered with TP mounds lately.
