We arrived on a Thursday & there was already a bunch of people. One guy was complaining to us how he has camped there for 20 years & now can’t get a spot. The river sites were dirty & there was lots of trash. Also some water bottles & 2x4 lumber in the water
First come first serve spots along the river. There are a lot of trees down in the area. Camping spots are far away from each other.
This site's operator is listed on the Dyrt as BLM land. It is NOT BLM land. Drove here during COVID to camp on BLM land and was frustrated it was not listed correctly. Do your research before going! Spots looks awesome just couldn't have a fire which is a no go for us when camping. Only giving 3 stars because it did look like a secluded spot. The post is just wrong.
We camped here in early May after looking at several other camp sites that still had snow on the ground. There were a couple of very deep muddy puddles on the drive into the site that we almost got stuck in, but our car without 4WD did make it through (I imagine this is only an issue in the spring). Once we made it in, there were spacious, clean sites mostly surrounded by wooded area and mountainous views. The clear skies offered lots of sunshine and beautiful star gazing. Would definitely recommend camping here!
Beautiful spots along the river at a first-come, first-serve basis. The more popular Colorado gets, the faster these spots fill up so get up there early to lock it down! Some spots are bigger than others but all can fit groups. Be respectful and open if a group is needing to share your large spot with you!
This is very close to both Williams Fork Reservoir and Green Mountain Reservoir for days on the lakes! About 45 minutes to Silverthorne.
