Crossing Campground consists of 4 campsites and
that usually means you may be the only one at the campsite
during your stay. For those who like to fish, don't get
too excited, the Blue River runs pretty thin in late summer.
When I was there in early September, there was only a small
rivulet flowing, so check it out in late spring or early
drive into the campground alone is worth the trip. Hikers
can wander into the nearby Blue Range Primitive Area, but
must be aware of the wildlife which can include mountain
campground may be unaccessible during high waters mainly
during the spring runoff.
is no fee to stay at this campground.
