Nice spot right on creek

Clean, trash service, many sites right on Lake Creek, close to trails. Note that this and other Colorado campgrounds have been expensive at 12-14 dollars and have had no water, trash, or both. Normally this result in a lower rating but the stunning scenery at many of these campgrounds makes up for lack of amenities.
