Nice large campground in forest setting

We just camped here for the first time (July weekend) and it is a very nice campground. It is set in a pine forest about six miles down a dirt road (63E) from Hwy 14 west of Fort Collins. The bathrooms (vault toilets) are kept very clean by the camp hosts and there is potable water available near each toilet during the summer months. The sites are all surrounded by trees and little meadows. It is supposedly a heavy bear area but we didn't see any bears, only chipmunks and rabbits. You can buy firewood from the hosts, which we did after realizing we hadn't brought enough. Our whole camp got flooded (including the fire pit) when a thunderstorm passed through and dumped a ton of rain on us. I really wanted to have a fire so I bailed out the water with my camp sink and was good to go. There is hiking in the area; a trail that goes around the perimeter of the campground and the Jacks Gulch trailhead which leads to several trails. The Little Beaver Creek Trail is about 14 miles out and back. The campground is first-come, first-serve only and we arrived late on a Friday night and there were five or six tent sites available. Overall, despite the rain, it was a good experience and I would camp there again.

We stayed here in a Tent.
