Stunning Surprise

Traveling in Mercedes Sprinter camper. Set a little away from the bigger attractions but well worth the visit, stunning views and extremely clean and beautifully landscaped. Probably not much room for the larger RV's. $15 per night. We were told by a fellow traveller that its never full and we only spotted it by mistake on our way to Canyonlands. Just off on a hike which looks interesting too.

Great location for the Monument.

Traveling in. Mercedes Sprinter camper. An extremely well maintained campsite situated on a bluff with distant views over the desert and only a short hike to the visitor center. The Monument is well worth a visit, a short two miles hike to the pueblo and the inscription wall which is fascinating. Very quiet and not full in early May.

Relaxing Hot Springs

We are traveling in a Mercedes Sprinter camper. Great location for a must see visit to the Cave dwellings. Most camping in the valley is free but this is worth the fee for the hot springs and the owners, who are very welcoming. Also the Hot Springs gives you a chance to swap travel and life tips with other travelers. Fee is $10 per person per night and you really need a reservation especially for the weekend. Other campsites in the valley: Upper and Lower Scorpion; Forks etc were mostly empty.

Peaceful & Relaxing

Stayed for 2 nights in early May. A few spaces left available each night. Quiet, extremely well maintained and clean toilets. Beautiful views and sunsets. Great and strenuous hike up Dog Canyon from the campsite with beautiful views, about 5.5 miles but the recommendation is to allow 8 to 10 hours. We only did 3 miles as the temperature got to 85 degrees so take loads of water. White Sands Park about half an hour away. Campsite highly recommended.

Great location

About 5 miles up a well maintained gravel road. The host was very helpful and there's a nice hike from the campground. Wood available and a lot of shade. Stayed on a Monday and it was about 3/4 full by the end of the day.

Small and quiet

Right next to the river but only 4 spots so arrive early. No camp host which is OK and only a short walk to a long forested hike. Don't forget to discover the waterfall a short hike from site #2. Several stores with limited supplies are located in the Poudre canyon.

Just along the river

Dutch George is located along the river in the Poudre Canyon. Fairly close to the road but any noise is drowned out by the sound of the river. Clean rest room and wood for sale. Unfortunately we did. not see any hikes from the campground but there are several in the canyon itself. We arrived early on a Monday and there were still spaces available late in the day.

Close to historic town of Arrow Rock

The campground is neat and tidy and well maintained. The main appeal is the nearby town of Arrow Rock with its many historic buildings and an excellent interpretation center. Great for a pleasant cycle in the evening or a stroll after a bottle of wine.

The best in northern Missouri

Exceptional primitive camping, private spaces with plenty of shade. Clean toilets and welcoming full time staff. Small swimming lake a short walk away and nice treks. RV area is a bit more open. Artisan brewery in nearby Cameron and highly recommended deli in nearby Hamilton. Always spaces available during the week.
