Small and quiet

Right next to the river but only 4 spots so arrive early. No camp host which is OK and only a short walk to a long forested hike. Don't forget to discover the waterfall a short hike from site #2. Several stores with limited supplies are located in the Poudre canyon.

Car Camping right on the river!

Great little campsite that is not too close to its neighbors, the river is right there which makes it easy to clean off, etc. Includes fire pits with built in grill trays for cooking food above the fire. Also includes 2 picnic tables which are always nice when camping. Super quiet, not one person bothered us the entire weekend. Cute spot but very green so make sure you remember your bug spray! Bring a hammock too! Lots of trees!
