This campsite is in a beautiful setting up against some beautiful red cliffs that are used by rock climbers. So if your into climbing it's a great spot. The campsites are well defined and ours was nice and private. The flies and ants are bad as the areas also a cow pasture (no cows while we were there hut evidence of them!) The road that the campsite is on is called The Shelf...if you drive north from campsite (do not bring your trailer!!!) You'll drive 14 miles on a Cliffside dirt road through canyons and gold mining camps (guys in tents...panningnin the river...not corporations!). This road leads to Cripple Creek. One of the places gambling and casinos are legal in Colorado. We really loved it but it took us 1.5 hours to drive the 14 miles! Anyway we enjoyed our time here...oh there's no water or electrical hookups so come prepared. We drove about 13 miles in from Canon City...road was paved but a little rough. There were 30' trailers in the campground. Our 18 footer was easy to get in and out.
