Blue River Campground is situated alongside the
Blue River just west of the San Fransisco Mountains. Only
3 units are at this campground which means you most likely
will be the only ones there. Cold water is available via
a pipe coming out from some rocks. The water is safe and
does not have to be purified. Day hikes can take you into
the nearby Blue Range Primitive Area.
driving the road along the Blue River, you will notice that these
waters are not fished nearly as much as the East Fork of the Black
River. Rainbow and brown trout occupy the river and can reach
decent size. Don't miss out on a great chance at a uncrowded river
as most of it is fishable.
Alpine, take U.S. 180 east 3 miles to the turnoff at F.R.
281. Turn right and travel another 14 miles to the campground.
