Description

Big Blue Campground sure, but mega-ginormous, super-duper shimmering blue campground, now that’s more like it! This often-underrated gem of the Uncompahgre Wilderness lies in a beautiful valley close by a slue of fishing opportunities and numerous hiking trails­--most of which lead south into dense backcountry. The campsites themselves range from picturesque cabins to cozy nooks perfect for tent pitchin’. Some may be on the crunchier side, but most have the basics covered. The landscape is dramatic and laden with aspen and spruce trees.
