This small campground is primarily a river access site but there are a handful of designated campsites. Located right off US 40, access is easy and most sized rigs will fit. While right off the highway, US 49 is very quiet at night with almost zero traffic. Good for a stop over while passing through. Sites are level.
This is dry camping and cost was $15 when we stayed.
Stayed 3 nights in early September in A loop with 30A service. Each sight had a covered picnic table where I stashed the bikes from the elements. Water spigots provide a sight for container water but not RV hook-up. A bike/walking trail of about 1.1 miles through the trees and near the river was very nice, doing several loops. My brother caught a 16" rainbow which provided supper one night. The grounds are well cared for and sights are nicely spaced. This was our second stay here in 13 months. We will return!
Visited end of August and was the only one there. The river is shallow and wide and warm enough to swim in. Two of the 6 campsites had shelters. There’s no trees for putting up tarps. The night view of the sky is amazing… access to the river for fishing was both incredible and makes this an amazing off the beaten path campground. There’s a boat launch here for rafts. The bank is probably too steep for putting in boats on trailers.
Good spot to stop and shower/do laundry in between primitive camping. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit, the table has cover. Good cell phone coverage. Playground. Showers, laundry. Reservations (at least one day ahead) required.
Pros: — clean facilities: flush toilets, showers (coin operated), washing and drying machines — easy access — right by Yampa River — sites are spacious
Cons: — very few trees — no privacy at all
We spent July 4th holiday at this campground. The site had lots of green grass and some trees. We were close to the boat ramp so it was an easy walk down to the river. We drove out to Steamboat Springs one of the days and had a lot of fun on the river trail. Hayden has minimal services so stop in Craig or Steamboat if you need supplies. Decent cell and 4g reception.
19 tent & RV sites. One site is ADA accessible. A bit buggy so bring the bug spray. This is the perfect place to stay prior to your Gates of Lodore river trip put in. No cell service that I remember & it's a long drive from "civilization" so make sure your car is filled with gas, is in good repair & that you have all the items you'd need for your trip. Vault toilets & water spiggot are great to have to fill up water jugs prior to rafting. No electric, sewer or water hook ups for RVs. No reservations so it's 1st come, 1st served. They have bear proof containers for anything with a scent. No trash containers so pack everything out. Only cash & checks accepted so bring $10 (although discounts for Seniors & when water is not available at the campsite).
Nice campground, fire pits, picnic tables, pit toilets, had water, no power,, NO Verizon service at all,, very dark out in the middle of nowhere,, but glad we did it, stayed 3 nights in May 2018
the road in and out is not for the faint of heart but if you get past the fear of falling off a steep cliff, it is actually quite beautiful. the campground was very quiet. only 3 other sites occupied when we visited in late June. beautiful cliffs surround one side and the river with amazing views of steamboat rock are on the other. only downside was that the canyons seemed to form some sort of wind tunnel right thru the campground, at least while we were there, with the wind whipping up to 20 mph gusts.
