    Just got back from a 3 day stay at Peak One Campground in Frisco, Colorado. Website stated "little to no shade due to pine beetle kill". Mostly true but we did have shade in the morning due to being behind a ridge. Lake Dillon is WAY down from what I've ever seen - like 10-15 feet low :( If we don't see a significant snow pack this year, the lake will be in big trouble next year at this time. Campground has flush toilets and water but no hookups which was OK with us.

    I use to live in Summit County. Peak One was never known for having a lot of trees when I lived there. I have camped at Peak One and Heaton Bay in years past. A lot of the North Central Rockies campgrounds have had the same problem with beetle kill. Makes me think of all the people who were warned they needed to thin out the old trees and plant healthy young trees. Oops sounds like I am getting on a soap box! [8D]
