Hague Creek Backcountry Campsite lies near the Cache la Poudre River near Rocky Mountain National Park’s northwestern boundary. The quiet area sits in meadows and conifer forest at 9,720 feet near the confluence of the river and Hague Creek. Look for moose in the wetlands along the river. The site is easily accessed by hiking 1.6 miles from the Corral Creek Trailhead outside the park via Corral Park, Poudre River, and Mummy Pass trails. Allow a couple hours to backpack to Hague Creek. The campsite has one individual site and one group site with a hitchrack for stock. A group/stock permit must be obtained for this site. The site has a pit toilet. Get water from the river or creek. Treat or boil all water before use. The campsite is snow-free by early July.
Recommended season(s): July through September.
