This is a great location right next to the river! No hook-ups, but at least a trash bin was available for our trash needs. The camp hosts we're very nice and informative. There was a fire ban so no fire for us, but we completely understand the need for that. We brought tubes for the river and the kids absolutely... More

Either way this review is for Happy Meadows near Lake George Co. Just ridiculous.

Happy Meadows is and always has been known for tubing! It is beautiful here and great for large groups and families. You will have a blast with your kids. Fishermen need to go elsewhere. This place is not for fishing in the summer.

There is trash everywhere, the dumpsters are in the middle of the 10 sites and they smell horribly. There are screaming children who are off the hook running around uncontrolled. There was actually... More

This is a normally quiet and gorgeous USFS campground with great Rocky Mountain scenery. But during a recent stay, day-users (Illegal) took over the campground, which is situated along the river. Dozens of noisy kids cut through campsites to get to the water, float a bit in their tubes, and repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And two small campsites near... More
