Beautiful campground!

I usually only do dispersed camping but this weekend we found Parry Peak Campground and decided to do it. The spaces are spread out and private and the pit toilets are some of the cleanest I’ve ever seen. We camped in the lower loop of the campground and could hear the rushing river all night and loved it. We will definitely be back!

We Camp Here Often

For some reason this is a go to spot in this area. The spaces are a little close together but there is some privacy. Close to a lot of hiking. They did not have water the previous time we were there. I know they were working on it.

SiteI cannot remember.

Shady lodge pole pine and aspen forest that is set along the Lake Creek whitewater. You will spot anglers all along the cheek enjoying fly fishing. The stream is beautiful as it tumbles along and over the rocks and boulders. The campground is nice and flat with some decent size sites. Gravel base. Nicely shaded. Sites 1& 3 might be a bit noisy due to the highway that runs along the side of the campground. You may buy firewood from the camp host.

If you plan a trip be aware of the possibility of altitude sickness.

Directions: From Leadville, go 15 miles south on US 24, then west on CO 82 past Twin Lakes Reservoir and Twin Lakes Village
