Situated in a long, narrow strip of mixed conifers along the northwest shore of Blue River Reservoir, Mona Campground is popular for water play and fishing. The lush vegetation provides seclusion between each campsite. Steep slopes of mixed conifers and other trees surround the area. There are 23 sites (20 single, 3 double) with tables and fire rings. Drinking water, vault toilets, and firewood for sale are provided. There is a host onsite. The campground is paved with mostly flat sites that accommodate either tents or trailers/RVs.
