We camped here one night at the end of September while on a road trip and it was one of my favorite places we found. The road to get in is bumpy and fun and not too long-the campground is in a valley with a gorgeous creek. We didn’t see the camp host but you can tell they take care of the facilities. Vault toilets were as immaculate as a vault toilet can be and the campsites were litter free. There is no fee but there’s a request for a donation of $10. We only had a $20 and felt compelled to leave it because of how well kept it was.
When you get to the campground there are 3 sites to the right with the creek running behind them. Then you pass the bathrooms on the left and enter the main camping area. Sites looked cool but it was hard to tell because they were all occupied by folks that looked like they were maybe living there for a while-they all looked nice and friendly. We ended up staying at one of the first 3 sites and no one bothered us.
No issues with wildlife though bear are active in the area and there’s bear boxes at each site.
If you sleep in a tend the pads are filled with chunky gravel-so bring extra padding!
If you’re thinking about going here-do it.
only other people were a few people fishing during the day. Great spot but road to campsite is long and bumpy.
We decided to try this campground out on a whim, unsure how it would turn out. I’m glad to say it blew our expectations away! The campground was very well kept and quiet which is super hard to find nowadays. Many of the sites are shaded by the trees and the nearby creek provides soothing background noise during nights. Trails near the sites are very accessible. Views are gorgeous.
One warning: the road in gets narrow at times so if you’re bringing an RV or a larger sized car be extra cautious.
This has been our favorite campground in Colorado so far. I give this a 9/10!
Avalanche campground is a unique campground with a remote and secluded feeling in a small valley with plenty of trees and the sound of a creek in the background. Getting to the campground from the main road involves driving on a one-lane road for about a mile or two, there are places where all-wheel drive is necessary and you will need to drive through a creek. In September the creek wasn’t very deep but probably in the spring or early summer the water would be deep enough that you should drive an SUV or truck. In mid September the nights and mornings can be cold, when I woke up at 6am the temperature was 34 degrees F. There are bear bins in the campsites but there were no trash cans.
So let me start by saying we had a wonderful experience here. We had two overland tents on jeeps and one ground camper in our group. As we pulled into the campsite we were greeted by the host who was more than hospitable and drove around to find our site. We chose site 19 which had a beautiful open field behind it, perfect amount of space with flat ground for our overland tent ladders, and a tent pad for the ground campers in our group. This place is kept amazingly clean and quiet off the beaten path and complete with a small little store on the way where we picked up ice for the night. If you’re in this neck of the woods camp here, you won’t be disappointed!
Sorry the fire and river side sold me
Right next to penny hot springs, which originally brought me out. Check em out if you stay. Drive south maybe 5 mins and there's side street parking to your left you can't miss it. Popular spot so you'll see other cars.
We had a wonderful time at this campground. Absolutely beautiful scenery and rushing Taylor River provides a nice background. Stargazing was incredible. Sites were a decent distance from one another, and it was a quiet campground even in the height of the summer. Only toilets are available, no sinks or showers etc, but the hosts keep everything very clean. Water available only at a few sites, but there is a faucet available near the bathrooms for water. Awesome campground if you love to raft or fish!
Don’t pick the first campground you see, keep driving and exploring two track roads to find the perfect spot.
We stayed in a tent on a Saturday in August with no reservation. The camp host was amazing, helped us find a shady spot for our tents and hammocks. The host showed us a great hike behind campsite along a small river. Kids and dog enjoyed the river and it’s hidden swimming holes!
Bathrooms were spotless and campsites in great condition.
The campsite is up a 9 mile dirt road above Lake. We drove our kayaks and paddle boards down during day for water activities.
