For the holiday weekend we needed a spot away from 1-70! We also wanted to avoid overcrowded campgrounds.

Getting there:
From west Arvada we took hwy 72 through Coal Creek Canyon towards Nederland. You could also take 119 out of Boulder. In Nederland; stay on 72 out of town for about 7 miles. On your right you’ll see National Forrest Road 326. Turn down this road staying right. You will begin to see a few different directions to go and there are many sites back here. Because we were camping with my parents and a 5th wheel we needed an open spot with an easier road. If you just have a pop up or tent; there are many great spots further in. We went left on 328B and found a great spot for our large group!






Pros and Cons….

Pros: great views, can walk to the river and a creek, close to town, great for groups, lots of hiking trails and 4 wheel trials are nearby.

Cons: You will be camping with others nearby….you can’t necessarily see each other but it’s a fairly busy area. Bears. We had a pretty persistent bear one evening; he came back 3 times; clearly he was conditioned for camping food. He didn’t come into our site with 5 dogs but kept at the people up the hill from us. Be smart about your food.
