Hold onto your graduation caps, kids! Snuggled under Mt. Princeton, you’ll find a perfectly tidy campground with quiet and restful sites with lots of privacy. Splish splash in Cottonwood Creek that flows right through the grounds, or let its sound hush you to sleep. There’s lots of wildlife and wildflowers hanging around to keep your Instagram game strong, and did we mention the sunsets? Just imagine all that you can see at 10,000 feet. Collegiate Peaks definitely has it’s masters in Colorado camping; don’t pass this one up.

It does fill up fast, yes! Every campground in the surrounding area is worth a visit. I’m a sucker for Colorado National Forest camping though. We usually do dispersed camping but hit up campgrounds when we need to stock up on water. This place was so scenic and enjoyable. A must see as you explore the collegiate peaks. Cell service is iffy with Verizon and ATT in certain areas. Most areas, though, I had enough to stay during the week and work remotely.

It gets chilly the higher up you get! Make sure to bring lots of layers. When I went backpacking in this area, it was amazing but also lots of rain!

Great spots with fantastic privacy from other campers (relatively speaking). The kids and the wife gave their bathrooms two thumbs up (clean and not stinky).
