Directions

Driving

From I-80, go south on SH130 39 miles to Encampment. Follow the highway through town, where it becomes SH70. Follow it about another 1/4 mile and turn south on CR353 (gravel). Go about 1 mile south and take the left fork onto BLM Road 3407 another 3/4 mile to the campground. Do not attempt to drive this road when it's muddy because it's steepness and depth of mud may make it temporarily impossible to get out again.
