We really enjoyed staying here. The bathrooms where very clean for a campground and our hosts where nice. It was also fun listening to the mountain sounds as we slept, we swear we heard a wolf call one night and an elk the next. We strung up solar christmas lights at night and enjoyed the mountain air. Highly recommend.

My husband and I camped here for 2 nights. It is a really beautiful campsite. We were surrounded by aspens and could hear the roaring fork river from our site. We enjoyed seeing deer walking in the woods right by us. My advice: If you are tent camping, bring earplugs! There was a very noisy bird who chirped from 4am... More

We stayed at site #21 with another couple - so two tents on the property and it fit us comfortably - there was easily room for even another tent. We stayed at this property the last week of June. Other reviews has warned of highway noise but this was not a problem for us at all. The highway is two-lane... More

There are so many things I love about this place. Each campsite is surrounded by aspens and near the Roaring Fork. Imagine going to sleep to the sound of quaking aspens and water. It is so peaceful. Campsites are good sizes, feel private yet not solitary. Bathrooms are clean. And there is no cell service so you can really unplug... More

We were looking for a simple overnight place to park our 32 ft RV and this was just what we needed. The sites are all fairly secluded and easy to get into. They did not offer and services like electric, water and sewer, but that was ok for our needs.

Large spots with many trees, fire/grill, table. Plenty of clean toilet facilities but no showers. Firewood available to purchase. Being at elevation in a... More

This is a fabulous campground. We stayed for a week in July 2015. Although it is just off the road, there is little traffic at night. The sound of the river drowns out a lot of noise as well. Sites are surrounded by Aspen trees and feel very secluded, despite the fact that it is a fairly large campground. The... More

Our family of four (including two teenage boys) just left this campground yesterday. The boys loved the fact that our site abutted a huge hill of boulders which provided lots of free climbing and exploring. Restrooms are conveniently spaced throughout the park but they are the no-flush, no-electricity variety so a flashlight is a must and a little room spray... More

We stayed here for two nights on a camoing/backpacking trip. The owners of the campground were extremely hospitable and helpful. Each site felt very secluded, even for how large the campground is. Highly recommend staying here and we all enjoyed our stay!
