This site isn't heavily forested, and the trees that are there are young. That means noise can travel quite easily between neighboring sites and also the need for extra sunblock or shade in the form of an umbrella or awning may be necessary.

The first campground on a three-month long road trip, Prospector holds a special place in my heart. Sentimentality aside, this is a great place to camp when you're in the area. It offers epic views of Dillon Reservoir as well as a path down to the water's edge. There are vault toilets in each loop, and each site is equipped with picnic tables and a fire ring. If you absolutely loathe camping in an exposed area, I might recommend setting up shop elsewhere, because the beetle blight has done considerable damage to the tree cover. However, there are still some spots with more privacy than others, just go for a good drive around the four loops to find them. We preferred loop D for it's proximity to the water!

This is a great campground- it's really large and has an awesome trail that goes around the lake! If you hike out of the trail by the outhouse/camp host in loop C you'll be taken to a beautiful black sand (sort of) beach that is very secluded!
