We have stayed here two years in a row. It is a “no reservation” campground but we have never had a problem finding a spot. We have a 36ft 5th wheel and there are a number of spots big enough for us. Don, the campground host has bee doing this for thirteen years! He keeps spotlessly bathrooms, cleanest we have ever seen!
There is water, hand pump. You can access some falls from the campground and it’s 30 minutes to Creede for provisions.
Beautiful views of Bristol Head and many areas to fish but this year it’s super dry.

Bristol head is just off hway 149 (Silver thread scenic hway) on a maintained dirt road. North clear creek campground is 2 miles on out. The spaces are level and can accommodate most rigs. There are two nice vault toilets and water ( hand pumps). All the spaces are on one side so each space has a clear view of the mountains. There is a beautiful scenic waterfall down a quarter mile trail. Moose can be viewed in the stream in the campground at times. There is a store nearby with amazing food and a few groceries. The camp hosts have been here for years and know the area well! A very nice camp!
