This first come, first served campground is located along the Williams Fork River. There are 7 non-electric sites that will accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. Each site contains a tent pad, fire grate and picnic table. Additional facilities provided include restrooms and trash service. Drinking water is not available, so bring plenty of your own. Water is also available at the South Fork Campground. Most campsites lack shade as the trees were removed due to the recent mountain pine beetle epidemic. Popular activities include hiking in the Arapaho National Forest and in the nearby Byers Peak Wilderness area, scenic driving and wildlife viewing.
