This tent only campground has 26 campsites where sleeping in tents is required (no sleeping in vehicles). The campground is located in a dense stand of lodgepole pines. All campsites have a level tent pad. A paved road makes a single loop through the campground. The Bear Lake Shuttle bus stops at the campground. Facilities include bathrooms with flush toilets, sinks, and electrical outlets, picnic tables, fire grates, and water faucets. Camping is permitted all year round but the water is turned off from mid September to mid May. This campground serves primarily as a base camp for climbing Longs Peak. Reservations are not accepted here so you need to be early to get a spot.
