Bradfield is a large, open campground with a day use area and boat ramp. There are 17 designated camping spurs with picnic tables and fire rings. Ten of the sites have shade structures and one site is fully accessible for those with disabilities. There are two vault restrooms and two potable water hand pumps (seasonally operational, generally April 1st -Sept 30th). There is also an additional camping loop geared toward more dispersed camping for equestrian users (a rustic and un-maintained non-motorized trail leads downriver from here for about 8 miles, with several river crossings). The day use area has three picnic tables and shade trees. There is an $8/night camping fee on a first come first served basis. The busiest time of year is when there is a 'boatable release' on the lower Dolores from McPhee Reservoir, generally mid-April to mid-June. For more information, please contact the Tres Rios Field Office.
