This beautiful campground gives you the opportunity to sleep to the sound of the river. Campsites are spread out along the river. This single file design spreads you out and gives you privacy. This is a great camp but reservations are accepted. The camp host does a great job of posting the dates that sites are available. If you’re lucky you can grab a spot for the night. Otherwise make an advance reservation.
This is the closest campground to Buffalo. It’s a beautiful town worth exploring. There is a hiking trail right at the start of the campground. Down the road is another great place to explore- Circle Park. You can hike up into the Cloudpeak wilderness.
This is such and enjoyable campground and area!
