First of all, this campground is NOT in Meeker, it is 3 hours from Meeker in Yampa, CO.
WOW SUCH A PRETTY PLACE!!! It is in Yampa, Colorado on Forest Service Road 900. (And if the campground is full, there are plenty of places to camp that are beautiful with views of the water and the flat tops along that same road).

Bear Lake is actually outside of the campground so there is no lake side camping or lake views from the actual campground, but if you camp below it at Yamcolo Reservoir or above it at Cold Springs Campground, the views are spectacular.

And the town of Yampa is very unique and neat. Population of 400 people, all gravel roads, no stoplights, and public showers at Van Camp Cabins for $10 in town. Yampa has a western cowboy ranch feel to it according to all my guests that come visit, they love it for that reason.
