Great site for early season

This is a great site for April in Colorado. Still plenty of snow around but this site is completely empty early season. In the summer it can get very full and sites are pretty close together. Parking is difficult when there are a lot of other campers. Road in has tons of potholes so low clearance vehicles should avoid. Hall valley CG is right up the road. (I enjoy hall valley more)
