 This campground is one of the few in Grand Mesa National Forest not located on a lake. Most of the sites are nestled in a thick grove of mature spruce. A few sites have a panoramic vista of the Grand Valley and several of the lakes below.  There are 41 sites.  The maximum spur length is 40 ft.

The 144-acre Island Lake is located 0.1 miles east of the campground on Forest Rt. 116. The lake has a boat ramp, wheelchair accessible fishing pier and fish cleaning station.

Mosquitoes are plentiful; bring lots of repellent.
