“A Most Beautiful Spot!!”

Reviewed Jul 17, 2018

Words cannot do justice to this place which could be described as: beautiful, tranquil, peaceful. How can you describe a campsite next to a rushing mountain creek, set on the banks with wildflowers, towering rocks and beautiful rock formations? We loved this place! The camp hosts were great people, offering assistance - especially in the use of bear containers. Speaking of bears, both camp hosts carried bear spray with them as bears generally frequent the spot, according to the hosts, because it's a great spot to train little bear cubs to fish and gather berries! This is why only hard-sided camping is allowed. However, we did not see any bears.

Our spot was right on the banks of the creek, under the shade of some pine trees. It received sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon.

The campsite was well marked and was down a dirt road from the highway. No water, electric or sewer but there is a newer pump style water pump that provides delicious, cool water that is tested every month during the camping season.

“Love this spot...”

Camped here as a kid (dad used to live in WY and we visited from the Midwest many times) and have fond memories of playing in the creek, watching the bighorn sheep, and peaceful evenings. We are taking our kids out West this summer and would love to stay here, but can't, due to our pop-up (hardsides only campground). We'll probably stop for at least a drive thru so I can rehash the good times! :)
