If you want privacy this is an excellent place to go. I was the only one there in my time. There's a trailhead in the camp which leads you to the Rich creek trail. There is an outlook about 30 minutes hike from camp that is a quick trip. I would also recommend driving up the trail road that goes by the camp. Disperse camping spots right by the creek. Beautiful place high on my list.

At the top of the trail road.

The best thing about this campground is the first-come, first-served status. With only 13 sites, this could be scary. We went on Labor Day weekend and had 6 sites to choose from on Friday, two on Saturday night and 10 on Sunday night. Good access to the Rich Creek Trail. Creek runs just yards from camp. Fire rings and tables are in good shape. Older style toilet, but it's okay.

Downside…No water, so bring your own. And you have to take your trash out.

And the road is a little rough coming up from Fairplay. I understand it's really rough coming from Leadville.
