See my other Review for Dakota Ridge. Another 5 stars with all amenities and screaming Verizon Wifi
We tested out maiden working on the road trip at this spectacular state park. It was end of the season so some loops were closed. Each site gave privacy with nature in between. The WiFi tower was right in the campground so WiFi was screaming. Mild temperatures in October. 5 stars!!!
Two general areas to camp - one in a more open setting with more sun, and one in a shaded area that has a pinch more privacy. We stayed in the latter. Unfortunately, there were no sites right by the river.
FYI - Put your car in low gear going down into the canyon. I had a jeep and didn't and I could smell the pungent smell of my brakes burning up.
Apparently, there is good fly fishing by the campsite too.
I hate to tell you this… because this is a favorite of ours. We come here every year in the autumn. We play on Kebler Pass, we have pizza at Stash in CB, and at night - the stars oh how the twinkle! But you will pay a price for these autumn skies. It is cold at Lake Irwin at night. Bring a sweater and snuggle up!
The Camp Host is a delight. So many sites that are good with peaks at the lake. You are in the heart of the Rockies. Wake up and pick a trail, or point towards a road. It is bound to be beautiful!
