Description

Cherry Creek is located along one of the most scenic parts of the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic By-Way. The campground is located along Highway 15 and is surrounded by dense mixed conifer. It is a cool place in the summer for people to enjoy a day's outing or for those wishing to camp overnight. If there has been a little snow during the winter, you will find a trickle of water in the small stream that runs through the campground. In the Autumn hillsides turn into a beautiful mosaic of golden aspens, rusty oaks, and bright red sumac.

Great place for a picnic or overnight camping.

Silver City is the closest town with all the amenities. There are several grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants available. The town is big enough to offer anything needed.
