Overview

Kelly Dahl Campground is located adjacent to the Peak-to-Peak Scenic Byway, near the historic mining towns of Nederland, Rollinsville, Central City and Black Hawk.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated among ponderosa pines, on a gentle slope, at an approximate elevation of 8,600 feet.
Due to the mountain pine beetle infestation and consequent hazardous tree removal, the campground offers little to no shade.

Recreation:

Although no formal trails exist in the campground, a few closed roads offer campers the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. West Magnolia and East Portal Trailheads offer trails within a short drive. The Rollins Pass Road (Moffat Road) and other off-road routes can be found in the vicinity.

The lakes across the highway are on private property and access is prohibited.

Facilities:

The campground offers 46 single-family sites that will accommodate tents, trailers or RVs. Campsites #1 through #20 are first-come, first-served. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. There is a maximum of eight people per site. Vault toilets, drinking water, and trash collection are provided throughout the campground. Firewood is for sale in campground. The road through the campground is gravel/dirt.

A playground suitable for small children is located within the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Nederland, which is four miles north of the campground, offers grocery and hardware stores, restaurants, gas, a post office, bank and Barker Reservoir.
