This small, primitive campground is in the pretty valley of Cebola Creek, east of Lake City in the San Juan Mountains. It is free, with sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a bathroom but no drinking water or trash pickup. Great hiking can be found in the La Garita Wilderness, and there are many ATV and dirt bike trails outside of the wilderness. The area is remote and lightly used, so don’t be surprised if you have the campground all to yourself, even on a summer weekend.
Recommended season(s): May – October.
