Description

North Creston Creek Campgroundan arid oasis―"arid" alluding to the fact that there's no avaliable drinking water. Aside from water bottle conundrum, you’ll be treated by the green-hued backdrop populated by the area’s endemic firs.

Let me start with the pros of this campground: It's tucked away with only a few sites and very little traffic. The sites are large and spread apart from each other. The creek runs through the back of every site. Sites are well-maintained. Now for the cons: I have literally never seen so many mosquitos in my whole life. The swarms were thick and you couldn't move without having a handful stuck to you. We covered up head-to-toe in loose-fitting clothes and I still walked away with over 30 bites on my ankles (where my socks were tight enough for them to bite through), wrists, hands and forehead. We were trapped in our tent the whole time we were there to avoid being eaten alive.

We went in early Fall and mosquitos were not a problem. It's a small number of sites, but cool next to the creek in shady campsites. There IS potable water about one mile away at the park in Crestone, from a pressurized spigot. Very close to the Sand Dunes, it's a nice site, strategically located and well-maintained.
