The campground is comprised 17 campsites in a single tear-drop loop. Some sites are nestled in a dense grove of aspen, fir and spruce, others are in a grassy meadow. The interior road is narrow and rough in places. The campground is convenient to a network of challenging mountain bike trails. There are nearby corrals. Tie City was named for the railroad men who cut the ties for the Union Pacific Railroad from this forest.
We decided to head out of Colorado….I know right? And we ended up here for the night! Campsites are very spacious and clean. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table.
By complete accident we were up there for the perseid meteor shower! Great open view of the sky! Thoroughly enjoyed our little escape!
