Description

Get swept away by the encompassing views of the mountain ranges here at Springer Gulch Campground. Inside the Eleven Mile Canyon, you can enjoy a short walk to the South Platter River (fly fishing galore!) or take to the nearby Overlook Trail for killer views of the entire canyon. This is also a rock climber’s paradise, offering plenty of crags and cliffs to explore along the granite-walled canyon. Opt for wide open spaces or chose a spot that offers more of a forested haven further up the gulch. It’ll be golden no matter what you snag!

Do not camp at site #8; it has absolutely no decent place to pitch a tent. We tent camp often and it's safe to say this was THE WORST campsite. Ever.

Now, as for the other sites... the first ones looked nice but I'd worry about getting flooded in the event of rain. In fact most of the sites seemed to have gullies running thru them. I'd say the "best" sites are 9, 10 & 15.
The sites are extremely close together but even if they were a half mile apart, there would be no escaping the loud and fowl-mouthed group of men next to us, drinkin' round the campfire. We got to hear them debase women and use the f-word all night long. Both nights. Sigh. The campsite host was there only briefly in the two nights we spent there. What a shame.
