I believe this campground is also listed at http://www.tripleblaze.com/2/647/Campgrounds/Meadow-Ridge.html
We stayed at Meadow Ridge the 2nd weekend of June 2011. Overall, we really enjoyed the campground.
First things first: though there are water spigots placed at several locations throughout the loop, when we visited, they were not on due to maintenance. So you might want to bring your own water.
The grounds were clean, and fairly quiet. The folks who stayed on the east side of the loop Sunday decided to point their external speakers away from themselves, so the rest of us had a country music accompaniment to our otherwise peaceful morning. But it wasn't worth the potential confrontation to ask them to cut it out.
Our group of 4 families was in spots 16 & 18, where things were nicely wooded. If we do this again, we'd try to get 14 & 16, as the space between them isn't quite as wooded. The spots on the west side are among pine trees, whereas the spots on the east side are more aspen. The middle was a little of each, but I think these are probably less desirable.
The bathrooms were very clean. At each campsite, there's a pole with 2 hooks (at about 5' and 6') which was great for hanging trashbags, lights, water, whatever. The tables are a bit weather-worn, so a tablecloth might make things nicer.
In our spots -- and from glancing, I think this is the case with most other spots -- the only really level spot for tents was the designated pad. So if you have more than 1 tent, somebody may be sleeping a little slope-y.
While the trail down to the lake wasn't terribly long -- it took us about 10-15 minutes -- it had some VERY steep sections. But the lake did have fish, so it seemed worth the climb.
Was this helpful?
