Wolford Campground is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, in between Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Rock Mountain National Park.
For all weekends, there is a 2-night minimum stay. There are tent sites as well as cabins available for rent.
Camping is $20 per night, with a $5 charge per vehicle per day. The tent sites arE located on site in loops A-D. Loops A-C have electricity, picnic table, and A fire pit. Sites in loop D have a fire pit and a picnic table, but do not have electric . hookups. There is a boat ramp open between May 15th - October 15th.
Services are good. The area is semi desert there is no trees in the campground. The campground lacks any natural charm, and we can for a quick lunch stop. Prepare to pay $10 per car to access the Lake. If you have a boat it may be your paradise.
Beautiful views abound, the lake is very clean and access is easy. There is lots more lake for us to explore on our paddle boards, but each day the wind picks up around 1-2pm and makes travel treacherous at best on the lake. Camp hosts are friendly and welcoming. They offer $7 bundles of firewood and $4 bags of ice.
The bathrooms are all vault toilets, with running water sinks. Very clean and up kept but no soap. And we never saw any showers anywhere. There is a fish cleaning station next to the launch ramp, which was very nice to use.
Fishing was rough from shore, conditions are slow due to temperature and late season snows, some locals informed me. Also advise trying to get on the water to fish, much better results trolling, just like you see lots of folks on the lake doing.
The campground has no shade, no trees, no cover, only some picnic tables have roof covers but no wind block. There is no cover or shelter from the wind. And it blows, everyday, according to the camp hosts. Sometimes extremely high winds- 40+ mph. We had to use our hammock rain cover as a shield in the shade shelter to cook dinner, and help keep our sanity in the wind.
Sites are all very small for tents. If you have a large tent you may have trouble finding any ground worthy of trying to sleep on. Most camps we saw had campers, and parked them all as wind blocks, hiding out each afternoon behind the RV or camper.
The camp was fairly clean, although I did pick up handfuls of micro trash and did a loop around the campground picking up a handful of larger trash too. I'd say a B+ on litter.
Overall we had a good time, but for the price- we did expect a little more. Showers. More space and flat area per campsite. Trees, cover, wind blocks are needed when it is known to have such high winds on the daily.
