What the campsites lacks in remoteness it makes up for with everything else.
Very well-maintained National Forest site just off Texas Highway 7 in the middle of the Davey Crockett National Forest.
Highlights for the site include:
very well-spaced apart offering more privacy than usually afforded
restrooms and showers were clean.
Access to hacking trails in the national forest
Easy access to food/fuel/firewood
A large variety of species for birdwatching
Small lake with deck for launching kayaks or SUPs
There was not water at every site, so bring a longer hose and be ready to fill your tanks or containers.
Road noise from highway was audible, but not too distracting.
Williams Creek is just about the perfect spot if all dispersed sites are full, or if you’re more comfortable with established campsites with toilets and hosts.
We stayed here during stage 1 fore restrictions so we could build a campfire.
Hosts were very friendly and kept the facilities immaculate. Firewood available for purchase from them.
The views here are incredible. Near 360 view of peaks and a crystal clear stream. Some premium sites are near the stream.
It’s about 40 minutes to Pagosa Springs due to washboard roads, but the drive itself is worth it.
