Nice quiet campground

Has a pool, mini golf, horshoes, bookstore, billiards, and more! Manager, staff, and host are all very kind and helpful. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!

Beautiful!

This campground is different than the rest. 2.5 scenic miles from the gulf. If you have a boat, this place is perfect. The campsites are a very short walk from the marina, if any walk at all. Very quiet and relaxing.

Nice campground

Nice quiet area. Lots of history! Restrooms and showers are in nice condition. Washers and dryers as well. Park staff are all very nice as was the campground host.

Relaxed and friendly

Most of the time I am camping in the mountains, but Boyd lake is one exception. If you’re looking for an easy to get to campground, with fires allowed, this is a great spot! Boyd lake is adjacent to the campground, making it very accessible and beautiful to look at.

First come first serve

All along Dakan Road (also known as Hidden Valley Road), there are dispersed campsites marked by a sign with a tent on it. They are all first come first serve, but offer great solitude in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Dakan Road is mostly known as an Off-Road vehicle Road, so 4x4’s are suggested to get up to the sites. However, a Subaru Forester and similar cars can do it as long as they plan their round around the bigger rocks. All around a great area to camp for free.

Perfect

This campground lines the east ridge of pinewood reservoir. Each campsite is dugout into the hillside, with a perfect view of the lake. Shaded by large pines, and a great view of the sunset. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a beautiful site away from the crowds, but wants to keep their vehicle close.

Great laid back campground

Timber Creek is set down in the valley just off of Trail Ridge Road near Grand Lake, CO. The smell of campfire smoke fills the air. Campsites are very well maintained and all have fire rings.

Best view on this side of the mississippi

We reserved our site 6 months in advance to make sure we would have a great view of the lake and mountains. And it paid off! This is one of the best campgrounds I have been to. Close distance to the lake, where you will find all kinds of people laying on the rocks enjoying the sunset, dogs playing in the lake, and kayakers enjoying the water. I highly suggest Prospector Campground in Dillon, Co.

Good dispersed camping

Lots of sites along the road, as well as Red Sandstone Road. Great views all around, especially sunsets because you are facing west. The dirt road up is decently long, but can be done in most 2wd cars. High clearance vehicles preferred, but my friend took his Toyota Camry and it did (mostly) fine. We picked a dispersed spot on the side of the road.

Looks like a campground, feels primitive

We stayed 2 nights on the “Primitive Loop” in site 479; about 3 miles north of North Fork Michigan River. It was essentially a cul-de-sac of about 15 tent sites. Not much natural sun coverage, as you are sitting on top of a small ridge, but there are great views of the mountains and sunrises/sunsets. Great hiking trails nearby also. The primitive loop felt like a little community! Everyone was so kind and willing to talk. Will be back!

Perfect Backcountry Site

As we hiked 2.7 miles into Sandbeach Lake Trail, we did not know what to expect of our campsite. We reached the “Camper’s Creek” sign, and followed a smaller trail about 100 yards off the main trail. All of the sudden, it opened up to about a 40ft X 20ft cleared space in the middle of dense pine trees. All we could hear was the wind through the tops of the trees. Couldn’t get any better. Not much of a view other than the sky above you, but that’s what makes it feel so secluded. If you’re looking for a campsite that makes you feel like you’re completely in the middle of nowhere, with access to creek water nearby, this is the spot for you!
