“Small campground with room for some longer rigs”

Overall Rating

Beautiful setting at the start of Chalk Creek Canyon. Fall Colors are great here! The ghost town of St Elmo is further up the road and worth a quick visit for the scenery and a taste of an early gold mining town.

The campground is very accessible on a good dirt road, 8.5 miles from the highway. About half the sites will accomodate 25-30' rigs. Sites are fairly well spaced, reasonably flat, with nice picnic table areas. We stayed on a Friday night in late September, so it was quiet for us.

Too shady for solar; it will be a max 3 day stay for us if we go again.
