This campground is located in the Arapaho National Recreation Area near Grand Lake, Colorado and is situated on the shores of Shadow Mountain Reservoir and the Colorado River. There are 78 non-electric sites that will accommodate tents, trailers, and RVs. Facilities provided include restrooms, trash service and drinking water. Each site contains a tent pad, fire grate and picnic table. This site has a bear locker. Additional facilities include a boat ramp.
