The campground is hilly, so it doesn't feel like you're right next to anyone (the sites are level). Some sites are better than others, and I would recommend staying far from the playground if you can (it's noisy and busy). The pit toilet doors slam, so stay away from those, too. The sites toward the back at the bottom of the hill have the most privacy and shade. The location is very convenient. I would stay here again. We camped at Kelly Dahl National Forest Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is enough room for a generator placed far away from your main campsite, as most sites have lots of room behind them. Be sure you have a quiet, modern generator, of course.

Pretty good forest service cg, close to Nederland. But could not find a single level site, and as previously said, this place is best for tents and vans. No cell reception. Hosts never made contact with anyone and raced around in a truck. We camped at Kelly Dahl National Forest Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a gorgeous setting (right in the middle of National Forest at 8,600 feet). Sites are dirt and vary a bit in size and levelness. There's a handfull of spaces for big-rigs (we have a 40' Class A), but I'd say the majority of the sites are better suited to tenters and smaller rigs. Fire-pit, grill and bench at each site. Pretty forest views and good space between campers. Half the sites are reservable, the others are first-come-first-serve. Potable water, but NO dumpstation here. No hookups. Pit toilets only. Overall a a primitive campground in a lovely and very relaxing forest setting. We'd definitely go back. We camped at Kelly Dahl National Forest Campground in a Motorhome.

A typical National Forest campground. Has no hookups and limited sites for big rigs. There are 18 walk-up sites and the rest are reservation at Recreation.gov. Has nice camp hosts and the park is nice. We camped at Kelly Dahl National Forest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
