Cherry Creek Campground is open Memorial Day – Mid October. No Reservations. This campground does not use a reservation system, it is managed on a first-come, first-served basis. Be aware the campground may fill up on weekends and holidays during the summer months and you should arrive in the early afternoon to ensure there is a space available for the night.

Best Review:

Great little campground. First come for sites. They are no longer free starting 2020. These cost $16 a night unless you have a senior pass and then it is $8 a night. I think the max was 14 but it could have been 16. Sites 8 and 9 are the first ones you come upon as you enter. Site 7 is a little further down and the rest are all clumped together. We stayed in 8 with our 36′ Class A parked sideways. 8 and 9 are by far the biggest sites.
