This is one of the best places I have camped! The perfect site for a tent is right across from the campground host, as there is an elevated tent pad shrouded by shrubs almost completely blocking the view of the tent from the road. The star gazing at night is incredible, so ask the campground host, Timothy what he thinks of the weather will do, as there is no service in the area to check. Timothy is engaged and helpful. There is a bear cage in the campground, but he said the bear hasn't been seen in camp this year. Proper food storage is essential for keeping it that way. The bathrooms are vault toilets and clean. There are lots of birds including hummingbirds in camp. Stay here while you prepare to go over Kebler Pass to Crested Butte.
