Some sites overlook the creek and a meadow. The understory is grass and the sites are fairly close together providing minimal privacy.  A trailhead provides wilderness access via the Douglas Creek Trail or the Platte Ridge Trail. 14 day stay limit. Stock unloading facility near campground, however no stock are allowed in the campground. Picnic tables, toilets, drinking water, fire grates and no refuse receptacles (pack out your own trash, leave no trace). Fishing is available in Douglas Creek. This area is located in the Snowy Range and is managed by the Laramie Ranger District.
