“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This piece of heaven is a must for all campers. Our whole family loves the beauty of the surroundings! We also loved visiting the Fremont Museum (especially the kids) and going on all of the near by hikes. We were so surprised that in the middle of July on a weekend, the campground was not crowded, and we were able to enjoy a quiet peaceful night. We loved having the creek right behind us (site 25) to put us to sleep. We did hear some large rustling outside our tent... But no one saw what it was, and it left soon after it started. Great great place!

After a long day of driving through very hot country, we were so pleased to arrive at our site (15, I think) at Castle Rock campground. It was shaded by numerous trees and near a babbling creek. We put our tent really close to the water so we could listen to it all night. We were surrounded by steep, red canyon walls. The campground was very quiet and the camp host, Jim, was very friendly.

We checked out the museum and visitor center in the morning and enjoyed that as well. The entrance fee is included with your campsite reservation, so just let them know you camped. We watched the video for a brief history of the area and then did the short, half mile walk around several of their petroglyphs. Very educational and fun!

We can't wait to go back!

We stayed in site 30, along the outer loop and loved it -- lots of shade trees, close to hiking along the rock formations, and fairly private. The inside sites on the other side of the road do back to a little stream, but it is tiny and the sites seemed a little claustrophic with a lot of bushes and closeness that blocked the views of the surrounding area. Loved Site 30. In the morning, we stopped by the Fremont Indian State Park visitor center and walked the trails around, looking at the rock art -- amazing. Very nice exhibit area inside, too. All in all, a great, comfortable place to stay; the best of our trip.

Also, on the map, it looks like this place is right off the expressway, and it sort of is, but is set back about 1.5 miles. The way it is situated with the towering rock walls surrounding you, it is very private and you'd never hear any traffic sounds or even know you were near a highway. We were a little concerned driving up, but it's gorgeous back there.
