About: Erickson Springs Campground is in a dense spruce and fir forest setting near Anthracite Creek and receives little sunlight so it is cooler than much of the surrounding area. Each site has a tent pad and can accommodate smaller camping trailers, a picnic table and combination fire ring/grill. There is a picnic area prior to the campground with 2 tables and a restroom and a separate ATV parking area near the campground. The Dark Canyon Trailhead is just past the campground and accesses the Dark Canyon Trail #830. The parking area accommodates horse trailers for equestrian access into the Raggeds Wilderness Area. OHV/ATV users ride the nearby Forest Road #795 (Munsey Creek Road) that extends north from Erickson Springs Campground to the Raggeds Trailhead, Raggeds Trail #820.
