Frying Pan River CO

Has anyone visited the Frying Pan River near Basalt Colorado? I am looking at places to visit with the AS this summer. Any info regarding camp grounds, especially Chapman, would be appreciated. We prefer the federal camp grounds, but info on commercial camp grounds would also be appreciated.

Other things of interest are road conditions and the fishing venue. The river is supposed to be one of the premier trout streams in the US, but according to a book I have, it can also be very crowded. We expect to be travelling during the first two weeks of August.

Can't say about the area campgrounds, but the Frying Pan is considered Gold Medal Waters, and like all the Gold Metal Waters in Colorado it can be very crowded on the weekends. Fishing during the weekdays is much more pleasent with large stretches to yourself.
