Very well maintained - we had a lovely stay. There was also drinking water available at the time of our visit.

This is a great campground that is on the Colorado Trail. The outer campsites are really nice and private in aspen trees and by the stream. The inner campsites are small and exposed. Get there early to get a good site. Bathrooms are vault toilets and clean. The campground hosts were a husband/wife team and very conscientious. They even put solar lights in the bathrooms at night so you could find your way. A portion of the Colorado trail ends right at the campground. I had Verizon cell service 3G intermittently.

Beautiful area with clean facilities and friendly hosts. Secluded and open spots available when we visited in the spring and fall. Wasn’t too full. Great access to hiking trails and an easy drive to the area. Suitable for any vehicle. Fun drive, too!
