This is a free campground in Eldorado National Forest that usually opens Memorial Day weekend and closes mid-October. It is a paved road all the way here. You can't make reservations as it is first come-first served and there are only 16 sites. Amenities include bear box, picnic table, fire pit, and vault toilets. There is no piped water so you must bring your own. Some weekends it is hard to get a spot since the Rubicon 4WD crowd uses it. A few times we have gone here people have left all their trash at the site instead of putting it into the dumpster provided. Please pick up after yourself so we can keep this as a non-fee campground.
The Gerle Creek Campground and Reservoir are nearby and take camping reservations.
