1 Review of San Isabel National Forest Elbert Creek Campground
First to Review
Tons of sites along this road

Sites look spaced out. Alot of them backed up to a nice sounding creek thou its not the most accessible topo wise.

Somewhat nice if you aren't bothered by traffic and idiots. The 14ers bring in tons of nighttime traffic 2-4am so try to get as far off road as possible. These sites fill up with moderately dumb rednecks with ATVs they mostly use to go to dinner in town. Many of these ATVs will sit in the road until you pull a crossover off road for them to go by. This means the daytime traffic on the one lane road is very annoying. If you try to pull over for someone, people from both directions pass you and punish you for being nice. Expect the travel time to double during peak camp arrival times.

We saw some weird groups building pirate themed rubbish piles/forts at different campsites. Not sure id bring my friends and family here for a relaxing weekend but if you need a Basecamp for a hike it'll work.

Road was very passable with 8 inch clearance and road tires but you'll need to drive with half a brain or you'll def bang your under carriage. We heard a couple Ford expeditions knock the heck out of their under carriage.

Beware, some real toolbags will park in the middle of the road so they can go hike. We had to scrape our car on branches to get around a couple.. i hope no one messed with their tires…
