The vibe at Parry Peak Campground
Drop some Parry Peak Campground knowledge on us.
Cute small campgound. Easy access to river, Twin Lakes and Mt. Elbert. Back sites best for long camping weekends. Have nice vault toilets, drinking water and easy access. Nice spot for quick trips.
This campground was nice-we liked the sites that were tucked further in over the bridge, but they were all taken. Our site was fine, but it was RIGHT by the road and the traffic and headlights at night wasn't our favorite. We checked out some spots that were for dispersed camping up on the hill just as you turned in to clear lakes, and next time we'll go there. If you can get a site at this campground, definitely try for one right by the river that's set back in the trees. The whole area is beautiful though! Vault toilets and water made this place an easy camping experience, and fires were allowed.
Our family (two adults, three kids under 11 yrs old) just spent seven nights at Parry Creek Campground above Twin Lakes and had an incredible experience. We camped at site #20.
The great: Location next to mountain stream and with several trails was amazing. Site #20 and others have primitive tent locations that make for a great experience. We were in an aspen grove. Sites 20, 23-26 looked like the best spots. Camp hosts were super friendly and did a great job providing info. Fire wood was for sale on site as well.
The good: The bathrooms smelled like spruce trees.
The bad: Potable water wasn't available but we were able to access water at Twin Peaks about a half mile away. Provided tent pad was small. Monsoon season.
