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.
