This tent only campground stretches along Squirrel Creek among spruce and Aspen replicates its 1930s character. Although a grass understory, widely spaced sites provide a spacious feeling and privacy. The Squirrel Creek Trail was built as a roadway by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The nearby Bishop's Castle, an ongoing private re-creation of a medieval castle, is an interesting day trip.
