if you are okay for a little bit of a hike up the mountain I grantee you will not regret the views you get of the beautiful town of fort Collins. Great sunrises and away from traffic noise tho you may have to deal with a little bit of noise from the hiking trail but other than that horse tooth has 3 back country sites that are perfect. highly recommend spending a night up there to watch the sun light up the town of Foco!
We pulled in late at night so we didn't have a great view of what was around until the morning, and im glad for that because it was breath taking! Surrounding our tent was fields full of brightly colored wildflowers, There was a small patch of fog from the rain that happen right after we had set up our tent but it made the view in the morning that much more spectacular. The campground its self was fairly quite its has restrooms on site (no running water) and you could hear a very minimum amount of noise from the road but only if your listening for it. I highly recommend this campground if your looking to spend a few days in steamboat or even if you just want to wake up somewhere beautiful!
When we first got there almost all the sites were full (there are only 7 or 8). We got lucky and pulled up right as some people were leaving. The site was much bigger then the one next to us, from what I saw each site is very different in size and set up. If you go during mid summer it will be green and lush. You are close to your neighbors since it is a small campground and it has very little traffic through camp at night for that reason. Great for hiking or if your looking to stay out of town.
