Cold Springs Campground is located on the Flat Tops and managed by the Yampa Ranger District.

This is a small, very popular campground. There are five campsites with fire rings.  It is an open campground with a small waterfall and a pond. 

The campground typically opens around Memorial Day and usually closes in October, dependent on weather and use.  The overnight camping fee is $10.00. Sites are available on a first come, first served basis.

This area accesses some great fishing and hiking, and the campground is close to the Stillwater and Smith Lake trailheads. With 11,000’ to 12,000’ mountains as a backdrop, the views are spectacular.
