Calling all tree-lovers! El Porvenir Campground is gorgeously nestled in a mixed conifer forest. Located at the base of Hermit’s Peak next to Beaver Creek, this campground is pretty much as close to nature as you can get. Stroll on in for some first-come first-served camping fun, but be warned that holiday weekends can get crowded. After all, the hiking here is pretty top-notch!

We just returned from 5 beautiful nights at El Porvenir Campground. We arrived on a Wednesday around dusk at the end of September and there were plenty of available campsites for tents though we had a camping trailer and felt there were 3 spots that were available and doable for us. A Sprinter camping van was also joining us the following day. In total, 7 of us thoroughly enjoyed the warm days, cold nights with a campfire (and there's even a sanctioned area to collect firewood from, up the road accessible from camp), fall colors, quick creek showers (no soap, of course), and the hiking right from camp. The Beaver Creek trail was simply beautiful and the Hermit Peak trail long and a challenge. Pit toilets were clean & stocked well.
