South Mineral Campground is a one stop shop for your outdoor adventure! There’s a variety of sites from shady places for your tent to sunny, creekside spots for your RV and even ADA accessibility. Sites are first-come, first-served but if you don’t feel like fighting it out on a busy day, there are designated spots along the road for dispersed camping! That's what we call a win-win. The Ice Lake Basin trail starts just across the road and is wickedly steep and strenuous, but well worth it when you lay your eyes on the high alpine lakes and hoards of wildflowers in the springtime. There’s also prime peak views and even a waterfall just upstream from camp for those looking to take it easy. Who’s winning at the outdoors? You are.
