Fairly small campsites, some shade shelters, some none, all have picnic tables, fire rings and power. Not any trees for cover, and it gets really windy. All the hosts have been very nice, they offer $7 wood bundles and $4 bags of ice. $20 a night plus $5 a day per vehicle. Vault toilet bathrooms with running sinks- no soap at sink though.

One of the two campgrounds on the main inlet, so you get some river and lake access. Can fill up quick on busy weekends. Some trees around, but not much cover or none at all in some sites.

One of the smaller campgrounds on Green Mountain, but South Cow is a stones throw away on the other side of the inlet. Fishing in cow creek inlet can be great!

Dispersed camping on BLM land next to Wolford Reservoir. There's a small fire ring in place, a few rough spots to camp, or hike in a short ways for lots of flat spots next to the lake. I even used the paddle board to cross the channel a few times now, instead of hiking. Awesome views, very hard road to get back into. Suggest 4x4 with good clearance. And be a good driver. Feels nice looking across the lake at the pay camp sites, but be paying nothing, and have no neighbors. Just be prepared for dispersed camp.

This campground is very elongated, some spots have a few trees, others are close to the highway. Usually the water is higher and closer to the sites, but it's a low year. Have seen huge parties set up all together in some sites. This can be a great side to fish from.
