This campground has 10 campsites for TENT CAMPING ONLY at an elevation of 6,400 feet. Full service camping begins May 1 and continues until the weekend after Labor Day weekend in September.
I'll agree with the other posters. Platte River Campground is a great location if you are looking to do some fly fishing. The river is right there and easy access. Or if you want to set up camp here and then drive up/down the road there are tons of fishing spots.
Keep in mind there isn't a store or anything close by so be sure to carry in all you need. I don't recall water on site so better to be safe and carry plenty in.
I went in mid Oct so off season and there was only 2 other campers in the campground. I chose site #8, furthest away from the parking area but also more trees. There was a bit of road noise but not horrible. Was quiet and just a cozy place to stay.
A great site to check out what this campground looks like and how it's laid out is you can check out this video I found useful on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc9JPE53Lf4
If you’re looking to fly fish and don’t care where you sleep, then this campground works. Great access to world class fly fishing so you can get started early in the morning. Expect the campground to be crowded! Very little privacy or trees. It serves it’s purpose, but wouldn’t recommend if you’re not there to fish.
This is a great place to camp if you are planning to fish. Otherwise I would recommend the Indian Creek campground which is in the same area but off the beaten path. This campground is on the Platte River and immediately off the highway.
