Radium (Kremmling)

10 miles from Green Mt Reservoir going north on Hwy 40 is Trough Rd…on your left. Taking this and following the signs to Radium (watch for a sharp turn around on your right) will get you to a couple of camping places that revolve around rafting the Colorado Headwaters (Blue River). We went to the Radium Recreation Site that is within site of the very small “town” of Radium. Colorado River Runs Rafting is here. This campground is $6 a night or a day use area on the river. We had my parents 5th wheel that is 30 ft long. There were plenty of RV, tent and 2 group sites. This is BLM land and I believe you call the Kremmling BLM office for reservations of the group camping. No hook ups, pit toilets, picnic tables…no shade. For some reason we were the only ones camping there on a Friday night. There is a train that comes through a few times. Campground is clean and has some great views. I highly recommend rafting with Colorado River Runs and Ian! We caught up with Ian and because this was a spontaneous camping night for us (on the way home from Steamboat) he offered to bring us firewood and also let us know that the only place for groceries was 5 miles away at Rancho Del Rio. We bought frozen burritos, Jimmy Dean sandwiches and raviolis for $33!! Ah well, if we’d been a bit earlier there looked to be a nice little restaurant. Kremmling was about 30 minutes away.

On the way to the campground we saw another small campground by the river. It was full…I would have liked to stay at this one and I’ve included pics of it.

P.S No cell phone coverage! Pay phone at the campground…$1 for 10 minutes to Denver!
