simply put, If you like small campsites with a few basic
amenities this is heaven! Camping is on a first come first
served basis, with most of the campsites filling up on the
weekends. Wildlife occasionally can be seen riverside, and
the fishing is top notch. Most of the East Fork is fishable
as an 11 pound 7 ounce rainbow was pulled from the river
not far from the Aspen Campground in 2003.
Make sure you clean up at nights as this is bear country.
