Ivy Creek Campground
Forest Service / BLM
Number of Sites: 4
About: This facility has 4 developed sites each with a picnic table and fireplace ring. It underwent a major remodel in 2010. There is a vault type toilet designed for the handicapped, but it is not wheelchair accessible. Sites 1 and 2 would accommodate small trailers or tents. There is a foot bridge that goes across Ivy Creek from a small parking lot to the developed camp units 3 & 4, which are suited only for small tent camping. Parking space tight but is ample. No firewood, drinking water or refuse receptacles are provided. This campground is considered to be remote and is normally not heavily used, yet it is very attractive with trees, the free flowing creek, and open grassland nearby. The road into the campground is too narrow and rough for large trailers and RV’s. The campground is really more suitable for tents and popup camping trailers, as there are no long developed spurs or pull-throughs.
This is also the site of the Ivy Creek Trailhead and Bulletin Board. All Parking for the trailhead users is outside the fenced in campground where there is a hitching rail and room for horse trailers. Ivy Creek Trail #805 goes into the Wilderness and provides the quickest route to Goose Lake. This is a trail open to foot and horse travel only. Here you will find district maps, Weminuche Wilderness maps and information and trail registration forms.
