Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest \ Sulphur Ranger District
Sugarloaf is a remote little campground on the banks of the Williams Fork River. Although the pine beetle devastated the area, leaving nothing for shade, the high elevation (8,962') provides cooler temps and the valley is scenic. Afternoon thunderstorms are common.
All sites are first-come-first-served in this 11-site campground. Drinking water is available 1/2 mile away in the South Fork Group Campground. Sugarloaf has all the other amenities for your fun family campout. Each campsite has a parking spur, picnic table, fire ring, grate and tent pad. Vault toilets and garbage disposal are also provided in the campground. Sugarloaf Campground is generally open from early June through mid-October; weather permitting.
There are many hiking trails in the area including the nearby 23-mile South Fork Trail. The trailhead is at South Fork Group Campground. Mountain bikers enjoy Ute Pass Trail and fishing in Williams Fork River and Reservoir is also popular.
