This small campground, stretches along the banks of the South Fork of the Rio Grande River among mature spruce. Many sites are adjacent to the river. US Highway 160 is very close by so some traffic noise is common day and night. With heavy understory, the campground has the feel of spacious seclusion and is very cool and shady.
This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.
There is fishing nearby in the South Fork of the Rio Grande and Park Creek. Wolf Creek Pass is 9.5 miles west from the campground. The facilities include 13 newly remodeled gravel sites with tables and steel fireplace rings (firewood is not provided), 2 vault type toilets, a centralized refuse bin and a developed drinking water system with hand pumps (in season) and adequate turn around and parking space for trailers. This is a great nightly stop over campground for travelers on US Highway 160.
