“Only stay in 14 or 11”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2018

Overall Rating

So I did my homework ahead of time and I'm SO glad I landed site 14! This is a weird CG. As the previous reviewer mentioned, many of the sites are side-by-side or three-by-side sites. If you didn't know your neighbor at most of these sites, it would be very awkward. Sites 11 and 14 are pretty much the only sites with any space or priva... more

“Tight Sites”

Reviewed Aug 27, 2017

Overall Rating

Recreation.gov doesn't accurately describe the sites. Some, such as 9 and 10, are together, as in shared. The photo on Recreation.gov shows a level tent area, but the parking for the RV was sloped uphill and difficult with just a 20 ft. trailer to get over to one side (blind side backing) from a narrow road. The next day a camper parke... more

This was my second stay, here, at Echo Lake. The campground sits at the base of the toll road, and close to its namesake, Echo Lake.

The camp host (wif... more

This campground sits close to 10,000' in elevation, making it very comfortable in hot summer weather. What I liked: •Location - about half of the way up the mountain, close to the lodge •Set right in the woods •Campground hosts were very friendly What could have been better: Tight spaces, felt like we were doubled up in sit... more
