Elk Creek Campground is located 16 miles west of Gunnison at mile marker 142 on U.S. Highway 50 on the shore of Blue Mesa Reservoir. All types of camping from tents to large RVs can be accommodated at Elk Creek, but note that there are very few sites with trees. This is the only campground with electricity (Loop D only) at Curecanti. Reservations are strongly recommended for Loops A, B and D in the summer months. First-come first-served sites are usually available, but may be hard to find on summer holiday weekends.
* Showers are not included in camping fees. They require quarters to operate (quarters available from the marina, not the visitor center).
