This is a small, quiet campground with seven campsites that are dispersed among the trees, lending a feeling of privacy.  The area is surrounded by the scenic 235,000 acre Flat Tops Wilderness, so bring your camera.

The campground typically opens for Memorial Day and closes around the end of October, dependent on weather and use.  This area is managed by the Yampa Ranger District.

The overnight camping fee is $10.00. Sites are available on a 1st come 1st served basis.

The area accesses some great fishing and hiking, and the campground is close to the Stillwater and Smith Lake Trailheads.

Water turned off for the season 10/1/15.
