“Quiet and full of climbers”

Reviewed Sep 14, 2018

Overall Rating

A few miles north of Rifle Falls State park, on gravel road. You'll go through some very narrow spots on the road, threading between the rock walls of the canyon. If you look up, you're likely to see many rock climbers on the rugged cliff faces.

While the majority of campsites are very close to the road, it's not really an issue as there is actually very little traffic on the unpaved road.

We were at the end of the line in site 29. The creek was immediately across the campground road, and we had our morning coffee every day sitting by the bubbling water, waiting for the sun to rise above the walls of the narrow canyon.

Some campsites are very close together, but site 29 offered nice privacy. Even though it was September, the campground filled every night with rock climbers from across the US and even Europe. However, it remained very quiet throughout the campground.

It's well worth spending an afternoon watching the climbers. We also spent several days on the fire roads, going over the top of the nearby mountains in our jeep. We were stopped by sheep being moved across the meadows by a shepherd on horseback. And don't miss Rifle Falls at the state park.

The camping cost was really only $10/night, but a daily park pass is necessary at $5/day. An annual pass can be purchased, but it is $50/year for a non-resident.
