The campground elevation is 9,500 feet. This single loop campground has 10 sites, 6 gravel pull throughs and 4 dead end gravel spurs. There is a beautiful waterfall within a few hundred feet that you can hike to easily from the south end of the campground.
The campground, just off State Highway 149, is well suited for overnight stays with many level pull-throughs.

Aspen provides shade for some of the campground while spruce trees soften the surrounding hillsides. Be sure to take the short trail to view South Clear Creek Falls. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.
