We really liked this site. Site 24 is perfect for a 26' trailer and smaller. Most of the sites are just separate enough to not notice the neighbors. The rushing river also helps drown out the sound and makes for great sleeping! The views are beautiful being surrounded by high peaks. Road is close, but again the river drowns out a lot of noise.

There are no hookups. This is dry camping. Bring your water. If you need to dump/fill, use White Star Campground 5 minutes east for a small $10 fee.

One note: it's high elevation for some people. 9400 ft. Can cause high altitude symptoms.

“NO WATER”

Reviewed 10/8/2018

Overall Rating

My first experience with Parry Peak Campground was back in 1991. That was a time that the campground was well maintained. I have been coming to the area since that time. We used different campgrounds: Twin Peaks, Lake View and White Star. For last 5 years, I used White Star. Last summer we decided to stay at the Parry Peak. NO WATER there! I was told that there has not been water at the camp for last 3 years. So we stayed at Twin Peaks. The rumor is that the Forest Service doesn't have money to repair the water line. Another rumor says, that the water line is broken at the private property located between Parry Peak and Twin Peaks campground. There is water at that property. The water line goes through that property.
I am coming back to the area the summer 2019. Parry Peak campground is on the list. But, if there is no water, we select other places.

PS I am going to copy this to the Department of Agriculture. I believe that those campgrounds are under the DOA jurisdiction.
