Currant Creek Campground sits next to Currant Creek Reservoir at an elevation of 8,000 feet. A wide variety of recreational activities awaits, including boating, fishing and hiking.
Rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout fishing is a popular activity on the reservoir, as is canoeing, kayaking and boating. A boat ramp is located on-site.
Numerous horseback riding, hiking and biking trails crisscross the area, including a nice loop around the reservoir. Currant Creek Trail begins in D Loop of the campground.
This large campground provides group, equestrian, and single and double-family sites. A day-use area is on the lake shore and offers an accessible fishing dock and fish cleaning station. A small store is located at the campground entrance, with camping and fishing supplies, firewood, ice and limited food items.
Campsites contain picnic tables, campfire rings, grills and cement site pads. Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.
The campground is situated on a hillside above the reservoir, among stands of aspen, fir and lodgepole pine trees, which offer partial shade. Summer wildflowers are plentiful. Deer and elk frequent the site, and nearly every campsite has scenic views of the reservoir and surrounding mountains.
Race Track Creek Trailhead is just outside the campground. Coal Mine Hollow is just around the lake. Both offer off-road vehicle trail opportunities, hiking and fishing.

I have grew up coming to current creek with my family we would even come to hunt here it's so beautiful relaxing and fun for boating and fishing even great hiking trails.
Great fishing and clean camping sites. Super cold at night so pack warm clothes!
Hidden by a long dirt road, my family enjoyed going up here twice last summer. We played in the lake, tried some fishing, and enjoyed sitting in the share of large ponderosas. It was quiet even with many people camping in the area were there to ride trails on their ATVs. The road in was the only discouraging part.
