Hidden Gem

Small campground by creek. Lots of room between sites. Very pretty location. -The Free Birds RV- https://livefreebirds.com IG: thefreebirdsrv

A hidden gem near Red Feather

This is a great little campground with only 7 campsites that are first come first served (no reservations). However, it's almost never full and if it is full there are plenty of free camping areas along the road (forest service road). There is no electricity or sewer capabilities for RV's and campers and the sites are relatively small, but a pop up or smaller 5th wheels and RVs will fit. There are pit toilets in the campground, but no running water - so pack your own or bring a filter to pump out of the creek.

The beautiful Kilpecker Creek runs through the camp and most of the campsites are situated right along the creek. All of the campsites have a good tent pad, fire pit and picnic table. The great thing about this campground is it's location and the fact that the sites are fairly spaced out giving you more privacy at each site. There is also a great communal area in the center of the campground of you have a small group up there.

Maka sure to use a bear bag or put all food in the car at night (bear country)

Beautiful Area

The Poudre River is absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed camping here, even though the sound of the river can be quite loud. Each site has a table, fire ring and tent pad. The drive up to this area is breathtaking as well.
