Deerlodge Park Campground is located 53 miles east of the Canyon Visitor Center. It is located on the Yampa River at the boat ramp at the head of Yampa Canyon.

It has seven shady sites suitable for tents. The sites have tables and firepits. There is running water and vault toilets, but no showers. The water is turned off from October to mid-April, and there is no camping fee when the water is turned off.

Deerlodge Campground is open year-round, but winter access can be very difficult due to snow. When the Yampa River exceeds 18,000 cfs, the campground will flood. This is typically during the late spring runoff.

Do you know the difference between a petroglyph (pictured here) and a pictograph? Petroglyphs are images pecked into rock while pictographs are painted images. Dinosaur National Monument preserves both forms of Native American rock art.
