This campground is located in the Arapaho National Recreation Area and is the largest campground on the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forest. There are 129 sites (21 electric and 108 non-electric) that will accommodate tents, trailers, and RVs. Facilities provided include restrooms, trash service, dump station, showers, and drinking water. Each site contains a tent pad, fire grate, and picnic table. Additional facilities include a boat ramp. The campground is located on US Highway 34 next to Lake Granby, the largest reservoir in the Arapaho National Recreation Area. Popular activities include fishing and boating on Lake Granby and other nearby lakes and streams. There is no natural shade as the trees were removed during the recent mountain pine beetle epidemic. New trees have been planted. The first 11 sites outside the campground gate remain open year round as weather permits.
