“Great forest service campground on a lovely river.”

This pretty Forest Service campground is just up the road from the small resort town of Almont, Colorado. The road has some large potholes going in, but is easily navigable by any vehicle if you go slow. Located deep in the Taylor River canyon, the sites are nicely spaced, surrounded by tall pine trees and right on the river bank. It’s technically close to the highway, but because it’s on the other side of the river, you hardly notice it due to the wonderful river soundtrack.

Instead you will get some noise from the river rafting boats and from the mountain bikers coming off the Doctor Park trail, but that’s the kind of noise I can deal with.

No hookups here and solar can be difficult being in a canyon and all, but it’s well worth any deprivations. There is a hand pumped well for water and bear boxes and trash is also available. Verizon signal is surprisingly strong considering it’s in a canyon. This makes for a great working site.

Firewood is available from the camp host for an additional fee.

Unlike the other Forest Service campgrounds along Taylor River, which have paved roads and hookups, but which are right next to the highway, North Bank is (duh) on the north bank, next to the river. The rush of water helps mask traffic noise. You'll have some happy whooping rafters go by occasionally, though. There are potholes in the access road, and some of the sites are far from level, but it's the right kind of place for anglers and hikers. And, amazingly for any place up a canyon, there's 4G Verizon service.

Long Silence, Lots Happening

  Proving that blogging is the first thing to suffer as soon as stuff gets interesting, we’ve been horribly quiet over here lately. It’s been a whirlwind of activity as we’ve purchased our traile...
