The campground offers one group site, equipped with picnic and serving tables, as well as campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.
Lemon Reservoir is about three miles from the campground, offering boating, water skiing and fishing opportunities. The reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. Many visitors take advantage of Colorado's Free Fishing Days, held annually the first full weekend of June. Young's Canyon Trail No. 546 begins at the north end of the reservoir. Hikers must cross the Florida River to access the trail; crossing is tricky during high water. The trail is very popular during hunting season.
This lightly used campground is situated in a shady forest of Colorado blue spruce, Douglas fir and aspen trees. The swift Florida River flows next to the campground.
The Florida River is well known for its rainbow and brown trout fishing, but the river runs through much private land, so anglers should be careful not to trespass. Hiking and biking are popular activities in the area. The Burnt Timber Trail No. 667 begins at Transfer Park, about a mile north of the campground. The East Florida Road (Forest Road 597) winds steeply uphill past the campground. Lost Lake and Stump Lake Trails begin along this road, offering short, easy hikes to backcountry lakes. The surrounding area is open to public hunting. Deer, elk and small game such as rabbits and grouse inhabit the forest.
From Bayfield, travel north from U.S. Highway 160 to County Road 501. Go 10 miles, then turn left onto County Road 240 and drive 3 miles. Turn right on County Road 243, then continue 7 miles to the campground.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
