Chapman Campground

Campground in Basalt

Located upstream from Ruedi Reservoir (good for boaters), this is one of six campgrounds along the Fryingpan River. It's fairly developed as far as USFS campgrounds go, with volleyball courts, a horseshoe pit and some seriously good fishing holes nearby. Water is available, but no electrical hookups. It's 29 miles east of Basalt.
