**FOOD STORAGE ORDER is in effect at all developed campgrounds on the Eagle/Holy Cross Ranger District, and the Piney Guard Station, Tigiwon Lodge, Mount of the Holy Cross Overlook, Homestake Road FSR 703, and Nolan Creek Road. This order requires all food and refuse to be stored in hard-sided vehicles, approved bear-resistant containers, or supended at least 10 feet clear of the ground at all points and four feet horizontally from any supporting tree or pole. This order has been issued to provide for public safety and wildlife conservation. Hopefully it will reduce wildlife habituation problems.

***Fulford Cave is closed from October 15 - April 15 annually. Some caves, including Fulford Cave, have been reopened with several requirements including mandatory on-line registration & decontamination of gear and clothes. View caving rules***

Fulford Cave Campground is located in a sparse stand of young aspen, spruce and fir, near an active beaver pond and East Brush Creek. From this high location, there are nice views of Yeoman Park below. The cave is less than 1 mile from the campground, and other area trails enter the Holy Cross Wilderness. This campground has small sites, clustered together and only one site could accommodate a vehicle up to 25 feet long.

There is a printable Recreation Quicksheet for this campground which is complete with a CAMPGROUND MAP, directions, details, and other information.
