“Idyllic camping in the aspens”

Looking to get away from crowds? Silver Jack may be your answer. I can get a little nervous about first-come, first-serve campgrounds over holidays, but there was no reason to worry at this campground, even on the 4th of July there were still spots available.

Pros: the campground is very well maintained, many of the sites are surrounded by a thick aspen forest that provides privacy, there are plenty of trails to hike/cycle/ATV in the area, Silver Jack reservoir is just a couple miles down the road for fishing/paddling.

Cons: zero cell coverage, long bumpy road on the approach, over an hour if you need to do laundry/re-stock supplies.

The previous review by Sanjuan lady is spot on for the description of the road. It is completely accessible with any vehicle, just takes some patience.

Forest Service campground with paved roads and pads. We brought our 27 foot travel trailer in from the north on FS 858 off of US 50. About 20 miles of good gravel road except for the last 2 miles, which were wash boarded and slow. Heard the road from the east over Owl Creek pass was much worse.

The lower loop of the campground was nice with water, clean outhouses, and good roads. The upper loops had crumbling roads and pads.

Very few people there even on Saturday of Labor Day weekend.
