“Excellent ”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We had a great site with a view of the lake. The road in about 3 miles was washboard and dusty. We rode our mountain bikes out the road in the opposite direction 5 miles. The road gets rougher and is uphill but a good workout. There are many 4 wheelers and jeeps on the road. There is also a trailhead out that way Green Timber gulch which climbs and meets another trail. Past the campground are numerous free Boondocking site many taken even during the week. We arrived on a Wednesday and the campground filled quickly. It was full Friday and Saturday nites. Water centrally located and out houses that were clean. We hit the peak of the aspens changing colors and it was spectacular.

Not much shade, a little expensive, but well maintained. Close to the lake, dirt road into the area was washboarded.
