Camper reviews for White River National Forest

Connect with Nature while Enjoying World Class Amenities of a Resort Town

Heaton Bay Campground offers a serene escape amidst nature's grandeur. Nestled beside the picturesque Dillon Reservoir in Colorado, it boasts stunning lake and mountain views. The campground is well-maintained, featuring spacious and clean sites suitable for tents and RVs. The C loop offers water and electric hookups and some sites can fit large rigs. Campers appreciate the peaceful ambiance and easy access to various outdoor activities, including fishing, hiking, and boating. The facilities are commendable, with clean restrooms and friendly staff. Reservations are highly recommended due to its popularity, although since people reserve 6 months in advance, be sure to use CAMPNAB for notifications of cancelled sites if you don't have a reservation. Heaton Bay Campground provides an idyllic retreat, making it a top choice for nature enthusiasts and campers looking for a memorable wilderness experience. Combined with this, the campground has access to a great community with all the resources you need - shopping, restaurants, places of worship, and culture.

Electric/water site

Great campground with great views! We stayed in the loop with electric and water hookups. Site clean, outside critter proof food storage, and friendly on site volunteers. Only negative is there is no dump station there. You have to go into Silverthorne at the waste management center when they open.

Great NFS campground close to town

We've been here several times - it is walkable (albeit not a short walk) to downtown Frisco and is a typical NFS campground. Sites in loop B and C are on the lake and mostly well spaced, and a few, like #46, have a direct lake view. No hookups, but plenty of sun for solar; this is an area of re-growth and so while well wooded, the trees aren't tall. The views of Peak One are great from most sites. It is also close to the Frisco Adventure Park. Overall a great base for all of the fun of Summit County.

Great Location

This campground is an excellent base camp for your trip to the Dillon-Silverthorne area. Has an excellent bike path that goes right through the campground. Only the C Loop has electricity and water at the campsites. Must reserve 6 months in advance to get a site. We used Campnab when visiting last year and was able to score last minute cancelled sites. We were impressed at how great the Campnab app worked. Will continue to use!

Peak One Campground is next door to Frisco, Colorado

We have camped at Peak One several times, when attending Mountain Biking races. It's a great spot. Right next to the water of Dillon Reservoir.
