DESCRIPTION: Primitive sunny creek side campsite with private fishing and views of the flattops. (not forested, for shade it is recommended to bring a canopy). You’ll feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere yet less than 2 miles from gas station, grocery & liquor store, a patio bar, a firing range, and a 24 hour 50’s Diner all located within 2 miles in downtown Yampa. The creek is sufficient to lay on an innertube and suntan, however the current and depth is not enough to float it. 

 

LOCATION: 27 miles from Steamboat Springs in Yampa, CO

 

COST: Rate is for 2 people (one tent/trailer) After 2 people, $25 per person. Appropriate for multiple tents (2 trailers (maybe more depending how close you wish to be) 

 

ADDITIONAL GUESTS: $25 per person (all of our sites are fairly spacious

CHILDREN: 12 and under are free

 

CHECK-IN PROCESS: Due to the sites not having unique addresses and the remote nature, check-in is done by escort. Guests will need to call 1-2 hours in advance with an accurate ETA time.

NEARBY RESTAURANTS & BARS: Yampa (Antlers Bar), Oak Creek (Silver Buckle, the Colorado Bar, and a pizza joint.)

 

CAMPFIRES: Campfires are allowed as long there is no county fire ban in place. We have a source within a mile away with reasonably priced firewood, just ask and we can help to arrange that.

DISTANCE TO OTHER CAMP SITES: Approximatey 50 yards

 

PETS: Respectful dog owners only – those who do not clean up their dogs’ poop will be charged $50 upon departure. 

 

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

BUGS: Yes, we have mosquitos (how bad they are depending on the weather) DEET spray is a must, these mosquitos also like to bite dogs, so protect your pets as well!

ROAD CONDITION: **The 1/4 mile drive in from the main road is not paved and is bumpy through a meadow (to some, it’s a breeze, but to those who have never driven off road may find the 1/4 mile drive in rough (all up to the driver's interpretation.) We have seen a GT Mustang go through no problem, and a Subaru pulling a pop-up, just note the road is not paved and is not a road - but more like a man-made path created for this primitive access.

Our stay at Bobby’s land was absolutely incredible. From the moment our trip was reserved, Bobby was helpful, reliable and made our trip easy. His land is beautiful! Very secluded, yet close enough to all the nearest convenience items you may need. We and our dogs had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful spot! Not only is the land beautiful and private, but Bobby is a hoot! We only spoke on the phone, but he gave great directions and talked us into the site as he was busy bailing hay in his field. The site is also a quick bike ride from "downtown" Yampa all on farm roads (you just have to cross the highway). The creek is loud enough to drown out any road noise but you will still hear coyotes howling and night and see ducks, chipmunks, and if you are lucky (?) a badger!

Wading in the creek to cool down.Great views of the chalk cliffs behind the creek.  Chalk cliffs along the creek.Sunset on a smoky wildfire night.

Spot was very private. Great Mountain Views and was able to set up tent right on the creek. My dog and son loved the creek, shallow and good enough to wade through. A lot of coyotes so keep your pets safe!!! Bobby was very friendly and assured we made it to the spot ok. Recommend and not a bad drive from Denver.

Our site was in a meadow next to a creek. It was very private and relaxing. Would definitely come back again in the future.

This site is beautiful, quiet and very private. Even if all the sites were full it would be great. The creek is winding and undisturbed. Perect.

Peaceful meadow campsite with a pretty stream meandering past, a backdrop of cool chalk cliffs (amazing in the moonlight!) and rugged hills to hike in. We saw eagles, awesome stars, heard owl & coyotes in the night. The creek is lovely to fall asleep to. Cars driving by in the distance but not bothersome, and quieted down by evening. Also there was a nice fire ring & picnic table. Bobby (host) & helpers were very on top of communication, and everyone so friendly! We loved it and hope to return soon.

This was an incredible campsite while we roadtripped from CO to UT. We were worried about availability of the first-come-first-served sites nearby and really lucked out with the location, extremely helpful/welcoming/communicative host, and overall proximity to water without any bugs. Our dogs absolutely loved it and we hope to be back soon!
