About: Currant Creek Campground sits next to Currant Creek Reservoir at an elevation of 8,000 feet in stands of aspen, fir, and lodgepole pine trees, which offer partial shade. Summer wildflowers are plentiful; deer and elk frequent the site. The reservoir and surrounding mountains offer scenic views from nearly every site.
This large campground provides group sites, equestrian sites, single and double-family sites, and a day use area with a wheelchair-accessible fishing pier. Campsites contain picnic tables, fire rings, grills, and cement site pads. Flush toilets, potable water, and garbage service are provided. A campground host is onsite; firewood is available for purchase. A small convenience store is at the campground entrance, with camping/fishing supplies, ice, and limited food items. A playground is located on the D Loop. A fish cleaning station is located at the day use area and an RV dump station is at the entrance.
Fishing for rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout is a popular activity on the reservoir, as is canoeing and kayaking.
