Overall Rating

In the Poudre canyon with a beautiful view of Sleeping Elephant rock. 15 sites. Realistically all but 3 are tent sites. I was able to just squeeze my 22’ trailer and 19’ truck into site 12. Site 15 was about 10’ longer, and one other site was long enough for me but I couldn’t make the turn to fit my rig.
There’s fishing in the Poudre River about 200 yards away across the road.
Many areas around this campsite were severely burned up by the Cameron Peak fire of 2020, but this campsite was spared.
Some road noise, as this site is right on the main road through the canyon.
