Red Hills Campground - GLENDO


↪ Get Directions

Amenities: Vault toilets (1)

Red Hills is a moderately sized, unique campground situated on a series of hills which slope towards the reservoir. The area takes its name from the deep red rock which surrounds the campground, and forms the steep cliff faces which border much of it. Red Hills has 22 campsites, spread out over a large, generally wooded area. Site one is a back-in with a steep, narrow access road, and as such is ideal for smaller camping units. Sites 2 -5 are large pull through sites, and all have at least partial shade except 2, which has none. All of these sites are a fair distance from the water’s edge, and have no direct water access. Sites 6 through 9 are small sites, suitable for small camping units and/or tent camping. Site 6 has no shade, while the rest in this group have partial shade. This group of sites is on a hill which slopes towards the water, but there is a steep drop off before the shoreline, and as such, these sites don’t have direct water access. The next group of sites includes sites 10 – 15. 10 and 11 are pull-through sites, but 10 is an individual site with no shade, while 11 is a group site with partial shade, which will accommodate 3 camping units. Both 10 and 11 are land-locked, with no direct water access. Sites 12 through 15 are undeveloped sites, and are accessed through a steep, undeveloped access road; four wheel or all-wheel drive is recommended. Site 12 does not have any direct water access, while sites 13-15 are closer. However, as the water drops later in the summer, the access from these sites becomes steeper. The last group of sites includes sites 16 -22, along with the campground’s only toilet. These sites provide the campground’s closest access to the water. Sites 16 and 17 are small back-ins with partial shade and a steep overlook onto the reservoir. Sites 18 through 22 are larger, and are down much closer to the water’s edge, with partial shade. These last four sites are potentially impacted by high water.
