North Crestone Creek Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

site #3 N.Crestone CG

The campground stretches 0.7 miles up a mountain along North Crestone Creek. It is rustic with camping sites nestled among Aspen, Juniper, Fir and other riparian-loving trees. Because the sites are so far apart, each site has a feeling of secluded wilderness camping with few of the inconveniences. The campground is convenient to a public golf course and the interesting Town of Crestone.
