Surrounded by aspen in the Rio Grande National Forest, the little-used Cathedral Campground is a nice spot with good views of Cathedral Rock. It is composed of two large loops along Cathedral Creek. The left hand loop features a large meadow and a few open sites. The right hand loop has a dense Aspen and spruce (including Blue) woods and a more rustic feel.
John Charles Fremont's winter camp is nearby. He attempted an ill-fated expedition across the Rocky Mountains for a transcontinental railroad route in late 1848.
