Anyone heard of it? OK?
Update: We camped at One Mile Campground southeast of Crested Butte for a week. Just got back. The bottom line on this campground is that its a great place with great hosts, but not all sites are equal.
We were in site #7. Its a good site, but there are better ones. If you look at the site map, the sites along the same side of the CG as #7 are closer to the 2 lane blacktop that goes from Gunnison to Taylor Lake Reservoir. It's a fairly busy road. Not too bad, but there was some road noise.
The sites on the left side as you enter the CG are away from the road.
The higher number (24 vs 8) site you have on the left side, will be better.
Here is a pic of our site:
And one more:
As you can see we had elec.. Nice, but not required for us.
We were about 20 - 25 minutes from Crested Butte. Really like that town.
It's not as big as many in Colorado, but lot's to see and do. Good restaurants, shopping, etc. We also like to hike, fish, and 4 wheel. (The Tacoma Doubles as a 4 Wheeler, Ha!) We went over Tin Cup Pass, and Pearl Pass, into Aspen. Wild ride, but lot's of fun.
Overall, we did not see a CG in the area that we would have preferred over One Mile. The couple that hosts there are fantastic.
Someone had crammed a bunch of disposable diapers in the blackwater dump, so it was not open. We had to be pretty careful not to use the toilet in the trailer too much..
We will stay there again, when we go back.
