Reserve early and reserve the right site

We found that the sites here at Silver Dollar CG go like pancakes, so you have to reserve your site as early as you can. Also, make sure that you reserve the right site for your rig. Otherwise, you'd face the challenge of a tricky back-in and navigate between trees. The site we got was huge. Because it's woodsy and the sites are spread far apart in the CG, we enjoyed a great deal of privacy. No hookups, just pure dry camping. So come here with a full tank of fresh water. There's a dump station at the Molly Brown CG nearby, though. Also, make sure you've got mosquito repellant.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
