Right on the river

This is right on the river in Poudre Canyon. Easy access no hookups, clean toilets, and good sized sites.

Haven't camped here yet, just sharing photos!

This was full over 4th of July 2021, no surprise but seemed quiet and it was very pretty. Sharing some photos of sites that had nice river access for kids and good shade.

Nice sites right along the river

This is the best campsite we had on our vacation. There are no showers or electrical hook ups, but the scenery outweighs the lack of amenities.

If you are a light sleeper, the sound of the raging river may take some getting used to.

Very clean and well kept. Hosts were friendly and helpful.

This campground is right along the Poudre river and has beautiful campsites. They offer a variety of sites including some very secluded ones, as well as a few that could easily host a large group through a few connected sites. I saw the hosts out checking and cleaning sites and bathrooms multiple times a day. I will definitely be returning to this campground in future visits to the area.

Kelly flats

Great campground along the Poudre river! Nice, large lots with a picnic table and fire pit. Good bathrooms (for an outdoor bathroom), that were well-maintained. Went on a pretty, moderate hike that was a few minutes down the road. The spots were well spaced, so I didn't feel like we were uncomfortably close to our neighbors. The campgrounds were well kept, and the guests were pretty quiet. I would definitely make a trip back!
