Getting there: From I-70 take the Frisco exit number 203 and continue south on Highway 9 through the town of Frisco for 2.3 miles from the highway. Just as you start to leave town there is a stoplight at Peninsula Road; another visual cue for this turnoff, it's opposite the entrance sign to the St. Anthony Summit Hospital drive. Continue down Peninsula Road for .8 of a mile to a stop sign; turn left here into the campground, there is a sign and it's well marked. Click here for google map.
|Site number 56 Loop B|
Loop A is the farthest away from the water, sites 6,8,9 had the most room and some privacy.
Loop B, which can be reserved, has several great sites including numbers; 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 45, 46. All of these sites have great views of the lake; but they are close together. Site number 55 was my favorite site with good lake views, plus trees for privacy; I chose site number 56 which also had great lake views and a couple of trees for shade and privacy.
Loop C offers good views of the lake if you put your tent up on the hill, site numbers; 72,74,76,78.
Overall the campground provides amazing views of Peak One and the surrounding mountains which can be seen from any site in the campground.
All sites are filled during the weekends; so arrive early to secure a spot for the weekend. When I visited on a Wednesday night, many of the sites were already reserved in Loop B for the weekend and following weekends.

It can only get better after this first camping experience and I hope to do it again soon!
