At an elevation of 9,000 ft, Yeoman Park campground is located on the edge of a wetland meadow near Brush Creek and is partly within a mature spruce forest. There are beautiful views of Craig peak (11,902 ft).
Filled with history, the Yeoman Campground is just a a few miles from the historic mining town of Fulford on Forest Road 418. Foundations of an old Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp built in the 1930′s can be seen in the meadow northwest of the campground.
The campground has 24 campsites (2 ADA accessible, 11 with tent platforms), fire ring grills, 11 sites with tent platforms and a nearby fishing platform on Brush Creek. Eighteen sites can accommodate RV’s 15-30 feet long and 6 sites have room for vehicles longer than 30 ft. There are 3 vault toilets and drinking water is available at hydrants throughout the campground. Trash receptacles are also provided for garbage disposal.
Handicapped Accessibility: Part of the Yeoman Park campground has been redesigned to accommodate Forest visitors with disabilities. Two campsites, one on either side of the accessible vault toilets in Loop A, are equipped with a modified picnic table and a low fire grill. There is also a fishing platform on Brush Creek near the park entrance.
Yeoman Park is a good place to view an extensive beaver colony. There are many opportunities to watch small mammals such as tree and ground squirrels and to see birds of prey like the red-tailed hawk. The Yeoman Park Discovery trail (200 yards) is accessible to those who have disabilities. Several other trails allow visitors access to the Holy Cross Wilderness.
This campground features Brown’s Loop and Yeoman Discovery hiking trails.
