“Lovely campground well worth the nightly fee”

Overall Rating

When we arrived, it was early evening. There was a trailer in an adjoining campsite with their generator running, which gave us some concern. However, they turned it off about an hour later.

What to Expect

Lowland Road is paved until you see the "Continental Divide" sign. Then it goes abruptly to dirt with some huge ruts in the road. There's no warning that the pavement ends, so slow down when you see a log cabin on the right. The ruts are manageable for a vehicle with high clearance. However, it could get messy if it's raining. I wouldn't recommend this campsite for a passenger car with only 2-wheel drive if the weather's been rainy.

The camping area is to the right, while there is a picnic area to the left. Two of the outhouses are located in the picnic area and one near the first campsite. There is also a bear-proof garbage can, so this is one campsite you don't have to haul your trash away with you. (Definitely worth the nightly fee of $5 for this convenience.)

There are bears in the area, so it's essential that all food, beverages, toiletries and other potential attractants be secured in your vehicle or in the steel storage container that's positioned between the camping area pit toilet and the picnic area.

Come prepared for mosquitos. There had been recent rains. We noticed they disappeared as the night temperatures dropped. They only came out as the day warmed up.

Amenities

Each camp site has fire rings and a picnic table. The site we chose (#2) had two options for setting up our tent.

There is spring water at a hand pump about 50 ft. away from the last outhouse in the picnic area. There's no obvious path to it, and it blends in with the surroundings, as they paint it a dark green. However, when you reach it, you'll find a large concrete platform surrounds the old-fashioned hand pump. You'll also see paths from it to the picnic tables. We didn't explore whether one of those patch connected to the camping area.

The water is delicious--as good as any bottled spring water on the market.
