Great spot. Good fishing and the tenant was very helpful. I wasn’t a huge fan of site 1 as it sits right next to the main road but otherwise beautiful sites. The only potable water source (far as I could tell) was inaccessible as of 6/15/19. Plenty of access points to the river at camp and along the road for fishing, rafting, etc. would definitely go back.
Very peaceful, beautiful campground. Right on Taylor River, you can fish or just sit and relax and listen to the water! Restrooms are clean and the camp host, Denise, is so nice and helpful!
This campground is in the Gunnison National Forest along the Taylor river. It does have a highway next to it so there is road noise. The camp sites are fairly secluded from each other. There is water available but no electricity. Several tent sites are available but there is room for RV’s. The river makes it serene. Rosy Lane is heavily treed. Frequently, deer are in the campground and occasionally a bear.
