The Vallecito Campground is one of the largest and most popular on the Forest. The campground is adjacent to Vallecito Creek and the Weminuche Wilderness. At 8,000 feet, its 80 sites in four loops are shaded by stately conifers. Most sites are large and fairly level. The few by the creek are quickly occupied.
