Nash Fork

Medicine Bow-Routt Nfs & Thunder Basin Ng

This campground was decommissioned for 10 years due to pine beetle infestation. Through a partnership with Common Outdoor Ground, Forest Service employees were able to clean up the campground and get it in working order in 2021. The campground still doesn't have many trees, but it is just as beautiful as before. 

It was recently closed in 2023 for a renovation to make the campground more accessible. Areas that were addressed for accessibility include campfire rings, site paths to connect spaces, and ramps for easier grade changes. Picnic tables were placed with enough room for wheelchair access but since they are not bolted down they may have moved. These changes were not implemented at every site, but wherever possible.

There are 24 sites with access to a picnic table, fire ring, trash collection, and vault toilets. The campground is convenient to the Snowy Range Scenic Byway (State 130). Dogs must be leashed in the campground.
