Squirrel Tents Campground is found in the beautiful Rifle Falls State Park. If you plan a visit to the Colorado mountains during the summer, this spot is a must-see. In the winter, the nearby ski resorts may get all the attention, but in the summer people come to Rifle for the lush tropical vibes and undeniable beauty of these waterfalls. A popular spot for hikers and photographers, this place is truly a Colorado gem.

All the walk-in sites are amazing. #14 where we stayed had an amazing sheltered canopy for rain and heat. RV sites are a bit tight. Take the trail to the walk-in sites up to top of waterfalls. Stop by Harvey Gap State Park and stroll around the reservoir.

Everyone in Colorado needs to see these Falls.All the walk-in camping sites are great.Site #14Site #14
