Awesome Campground

Quiet with beautiful views

Beautiful and Quiet

We went to this site with no reservations in the middle of July. There were a handful of sites open and we took site #3. Even with neighbors the only sounds we heard were the river and an occasional passing car on the road above.

The bathrooms were clean (pit toilets) and there was water at the camp host site and firewood available for purchase. No showers.

The hiking trail next to the river is great too.

What an amazing find!

Some friends and I were driving over Independence Pass after a Memorial Day (2018) weekend trip of camping and visiting Hanging Lake and Maroon Bells. We were deciding on heading home when we found this beauty! It was the only night that we were able to have a fire and the river was roaring, such an amazing camping spot!

Breathtaking views!

This is a beautiful campground with gorgeous views of mountains on either side. There is drinking water and vault toilets (some of the best maintained vault toilets). We were trying to find camping on our road trip and so many places were full because it was the weekend but we took a chance on this campground and were pleasantly surprised there were only a few other campers. This campground had only been open for operation for a week when we stayed there.

First to Review

Great place to camp before heading up La Plata.
