Boundary Creek Backcountry Campsite is a two-site camping area just west of the northeastern boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park. The sites lie in a conifer forest north of the North Fork of the Big Thompson River. The campsites are reached by a short trail, marked with a wooden sign, which heads north from North Fork Trail just past a footbridge over Boundary Creek. The sites, lying are 4.6 miles from the Dunraven Trailhead. The trail gains 1,160 feet from trailhead to campsite. Allow four to five hours to backpack up to them. A privy is located between the two sites and water is obtained from either Boundary Creek or the Big Thompson River. Treat or boil all water before use. The campsite is snow-free by early June.
Recommended season(s): June through September.
