“A pleasant spring and fall escape”

We've stayed here multiple times when it's too cold to be in the Colorado and Wyoming high country. In the spring, it's the place to enjoy birds as there are many (and many birders as well), though it tends to fill quickly on the weekends (we never make reservations). It can be very hot here in the summer.

We camp in a pop-up and found the vault toilets to be clean an almost odorless. They do have water on in the summer, but was off when we were there in mid-October (hence the $10 fee instead of the usual $13). You can hear the highway from the campground, but it's not bad. The sites are nicely spaced apart with some in full sun and some well-shaded.

Other options in the area are a bird-viewing drive (they usually have brochures telling you where to go and what to look for at various spots) and for a little bit of a drive to the east, you can hike out to the Pawnee Buttes.

The small town of Briggsdale is just across the highway and has a small general store with limited hours (based on a prior visit).

We stayed here in mid-September after an sudden snow storm chased us out of one of our favorite spots in the Medicine Bow National Forest.

This is a very small campground with only 10 sites, half of which are first-come-first-serve. A quick note though that a few of the non-reservable sites are actually double sites, meaning they cost $18/night instead of $13. Not a huge difference, but good to know in advance.

No hook-ups are available at the campground - we didn't even see a water spigot - so be sure to arrive prepared. There are pit toilets on-site, though we didn't use them so we can't comment on the condition. Camp host was pleasant.

This spot is about 40 miles from Greeley, CO where you can get your fill of shopping & supplies, though the campground itself feels pretty remote. There is a creek that runs along the backside of several sites, and ample shade throughout (a rarity for the grasslands). Other than a short walking trail leading from the campground and a small farm museum, there isn't much to do here. Fine for us as we just needed a quiet/ cheap place to work for a few days.

Our Verizon signal vacillated between 1 and 2 bars of 4G, but was usable throughout our stay.
