This campground is located close to Yampa, CO and sits adjacent to Chapman Reservoir, approximately 1 mile off the Scenic Byway, on Forest Service Road 940. It has 12 basic sites with a picnic table, and fire grate in each site. Chapman Reservoir Campground is an area in the Flat Tops that does not have drinking water, but does have one vaulted toilet. (if you are seeking a site with water, please see one of our other areas to camp.)

With a beautiful view of the reservoir and the Little Flat Tops, this is a perfect place to relax, or to take a scenic drive. The activities that you can enjoy here include fishing, some hiking nearby and wakeless boating.

Sites are available on a 1st come, 1st served basis and cost $10 per vehicle (per night)

The campground typically opens after Memorial Day and closes in November, dependent on weather and use.
