Recreation: World-class trout fishing is a major attraction on the South Platte. Visitors can also venture to Florissant Fossil Beds to view fossils and petrified redwoods. Eleven Mile Canyon and the Tarryall Valley offer scenic drives with impressive views. Facilities: Happy Meadows offers seven reservable RV campsites.

Happy and Clean

This was a quaint little campground that had good access to the river through one of the sites, and was a good location for tubers; within walking distance of good enter and exit spots. The vault toilet was very clean and well maintained and the sites are a good size. Beautiful scenery.
