We are experiencing a very hot summer, hot even at higher altitudes. Shade in a campsite becomes important. This campground sits in an Aspen forest, and many of the sites have some trees if enough to provide some shade some of the day. A shade canopy or a couple of tarps for shade would be a good idea. Campsites are mostly spread apart enough for decent privacy. Campsites were clean, pit toilets well maintained. Midweek the campground was mostly empty. Accross the road from the cpground is the White River, but it is hard to access because of the dense growth. A couple of miles down the road there are pull outs were there is easy access to the river. Follow county road 8 to the left and about 20 miles up the road there are numerous hiking trails. Follow the road farther you will reach the turn off that will take you to Trappers Lake, at the foot of the Flat Tops wilderness area. Lots of interesting possibilities.
