North Crestone Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"North Crestone is one of the best campgrounds in southwestern Colorado. Most other campgrounds are in a woodland with two or three tree types. Here, along North Crestone Creek, grows an abundance of tree types, especially by Rocky Mountain standards. The campground's location in a forest transition zone along a well-watered valley produces this biodiversity.

Cotton woods, pinon pine, juniper, Douglas fir, maple, alder, and aspen conspire to form a dense forest, where campsites are nestled into nooks and crannies between streamside boulders. Being in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains contributes to making this a desirable place to tent camp."
