Four adults and one child. We had two tents and used to have a shade/shelter. The views were good, the water was fine and the clear starry nights were great. the vault toilets were clean but the odor was unusually potent. The weather was terrible. We were on the westerly egde of the campground without any trees or rocks to speak of. The mornings were OK but around midday, the wind would come up strong and it would last through the afternoon and in to the night. Campground staff seemed to be aware of the windy conditions that were prevalent, but provided no warning or advice to those who were selecting campsites. The Backcountry sites were excellent, with trees and rocks and protection from the wind, but the western edge experienced gale force winds that blew down every tent in our campground, and wrecked the less sturdy shelter tents. Cooking was almost impossible on a cook stove as the wind was too strong to allow even water to boil for a simple spaghetti meal. We gave up after two nights and cut our camping experience short by two days. It was curious that the locals seemed to understand when we explained why we cut our trip short, but the camp staff did not share their knowledge. The showers were great, but the rest of the experience was bad. This was the very worst campsite I have had in Colorado spanning 15 years.
