Overall Rating

Fairly busy campground, especially popular with the locals from the valleys on both sides of Mingus Mountain. Nice escape from the summer heat (20 degrees cooler). Still, there were a few open spots all weekend as the summer storms (and hail!) seemed to keep folks away. Websites say the maximum people per site is 5 but we were allowed 9 (4 adults, 5 kids) with permission. A few other spots had more. Sites are pretty close together, with numerous families, but it was remarkably quiet at night during our stay. Keep in mind that this is right near the highway so you do get road noise that seems to tamper off late at night. There is another campground across the highway and up the mountain, Mingus, that was much more isolated and emptier, but I don’t think there’s water available on site. There are also some nice dispersed camp sites nearby, but no water or toilets, and very muddy in spots. The camp hosts were kind and kept the Potato Patch grounds very clean. Composting toilets had freshly painted interiors and were some of the best I’ve seen, very clean. Activities we did included a drive up Mingus Mountain to take in the views and a shortened hike along the Woodchute trail. Mingus Lake is not much to look at, more of a mud puddle, but perhaps it was due to a seemingly extreme low level of water. All in all, an excellent campground.

Pine trees and Aspen. Well maintained little campground. Electric hook-up. Central water. Super quiet. Amazing stars!
