Report: Well worth the trip. There are 3 VERY great walk-in campsites right on the water. Sites are closer than we expected, but the river drounds out ALL sound! They do have picnic tables and fire rings. Toilet is well kept and we found site staff to be very welcoming. ;-) PS. Bring your own wood from town (you can find several places online) it's about $7 per very small bundle up there, and it burns FAST!
Conditions: Perfect for Adults and Kids alike. Very close to water, so keep your little ones on a tight string. Also, pick your campsite well...there are 2 that are exposed to the sun all day, not good for summer camping, but great for winter.
Water Availability: Water was great! Also, they do have a water pump for drinking and filling containers.

Report: This campground was amazing! There are 2 different areas of the Narrows Campgrounds the tent only & the RV & Camper area. We camped in the walk-in tent section. There is definately a fee to camp there ($10), but WELL worth it. We were there on July 4th weekend & it still was not too overrun with people. We had walk-in sites 13-14, *right* on the Poudre River. Simply beautiful!
