Nice views and nice and quiet

The campground is clean, has wonderful views and toilets. There are 12 sites and if you cannot find an established one here, there are many dispersed spots along the road. A drive up the mountain leads to a beautiful lookout area.

Views for days!

This is hands down my favorite campground. The sites are spaced out, it's off the beaten track, and the views were A-MAZING. There's no trash cans, electric, or running water so make sure you come well stocked with reusable items. It's right off the trail for Georgia Pass. Could not have been happier with my stay. Also, T-Mobile worked there. Double check the location on Google maps. It's hard to add places on this app.

An ideal rustic NF campground -- secluded and quiet

This little campground is the antithesis of the often-crowded and overbooked chain of campgrounds on the nearby Jefferson Creek road (County Road 37). It is clean, spacious, mostly shaded, and near a LOT of promising beaver ponds and creeks/rivulets that hold brooks and browns. It is reasonably easy to reach on well-maintained gravel roads off of US 285, not far from Kenosha Pass.  Rarely crowded, the campground is first-come, but also adjacent to dispersed camping from the campground on up Road 54 toward the French Pass Trailhead (per Pike NF website). The campground has water in the summer months.
