Kings Hill Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

8000-foot elevation. 18 campsites  at the top of Kings HIll Pass on US 89. In the summer, this is the hub of huge networks of mountain bike trails. If that's a little ambitious for you, try driving up Porphyry Peak to check out the view from the manned fire tower at the top. In the winter, this becomes a playground for downhill skiers, snowmobilers, and cross-country skiers, who visit the Showdown Winter Recreation Area or the nearby Silvercrest Winter Recreation Area.

Bears may frequent the area; keep all food out of sight in approved containers and remove all food from area after eating. Mandatory food storage is required.
