Battle Creek Campground


season:  late April-Nov 1

elevation: 4800'

cost: $18 per night for a campsite (in 2008)


current weather

This is a fairly big campground (50 campsites) nestled in the pine forest next to Battle Creek.

It is conveniently located just off of Highway 36, but is set back far enough so traffic noise shouldn't be a problem.

At 4800' elevation, it is warmer and drier and often with fewer mosquitos than you find at the higher elevation campgrounds in the Park.

The store at Mineral Lodge is 2 miles up the road.
