Gurnsey Campground


season:  June-Oct (snow Oct-May)

elevation: 4700'

cost: $14 per night for a campsite (in 2008)


current weather

Gurnsey is a 30-campsite facility in thick, rather un-scenic White Fir (with some Jeffrey Pine)   forest.  Some sites are close to noisy Highway 36/89.

Gurnsey Creek can be accessed from the campground, but mostly is not visible.

Most trailheads are fairly far from here, and the amenities in town at Chester are fairly far away.

Piped water, pit toilets.
