After you bag a few Rainbow Trout from these spring-fed creeks, you’ll be callin’ Christopher Creek Campground your home away from home. If you want to dirty up those hiking boots, set off on the Canyon Trailhead, which will hook up with the Highline National Recreation Trail, giving you plenty of hours of exploration under your belt. There's no shortage of sites available, complete with grills, fire rings, and picnic tables. Come in May or June for the best fishing!

This is a super sweet little campground tucked in next to the highway. It has two large loops of campsites with lots of water readily available and decent vaulted restrooms. We staked out the site on the turn of the loop so we could pitch our tents far off the road and hang up our hammocks amidst the trees. A short few minutes of exploring a path leading away from the grounds brought us easily to Christopher Creek so we spent a few hours "creek walking". We found some fun areas to climb around and a couple swimming holes. This is a great campground for both small single-tent families and big groups like ours! We will be going back again soon.

This campground is great for small single-tent families, or big groups like ours. Even though most sites were full, we were far enough from other groups to have our own space and not be in the way. Photo taken with iPhone 6.The spot we chose was on the bend of the loop, which allowed us to have plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the forest. Loved it! Photo taken with iPhone 6.Perfect campground for hammocks! Just a short walk beyond this photo is a walking path beside the beautiful little Christopher Creek. Photo taken with iPhone 6.
