Elkhorn Campground - GLENDO


↪ Get Directions

WATER LEVEL NOTE: During extreme high water years, flood waters can make some campsites inaccessible, and/or cut off access to the campground entirely.

Amenities: Vault Toilet (1), Seasonal Boat Ramp and Courtesy Dock, Fee Canister, ADA accessible camping pad (1)

Elkhorn is the campground which is farthest north on Glendo’s western shore. To access it from I-25 turn north on highway 319 out of the town of Glendo, and follow the highway for about 5 miles. The exit for Elkhorn will be on the right-hand side of highway 319. Elkhorn is a very popular destination in the spring, as it provides the boat ramp farthest north, and thus the closest access to the river inlet and canyon. The campground is small, consisting of 9 campsites and one day use site. Site 2 is a  large, undeveloped site, situated in an open field of native grasses. Site 3 is similarly exposed, and has a large, ADA compliant pad. Sites 4 through 9 are all undeveloped sites, situated along a line of cottonwood trees. The toilet is in the boat ramp parking lot, and is a quarter mile from sites 1 and 2, and is a moderate walk from the other sites. During times of high water, normally from early May to early July, there are several points from which visitors can have decently easy access by foot to the water. The boat ramp is often usable by early May or even late April, but is our first to come out of the water when water levels start to drop in July. The ramp and dock are often high and dry by early-mid July.
