GROUNDS

Big Spruce is nestled in the cedars between two creeks on the side of the Grand Mesa just outside of Cedaredge, Colorado. The grounds reflect the natural beauty to be found in this portion of Colorado. With the smell of cedar and spruce in the air, quiet times for reflection can be found on benches throughout the campground, on the bridge over Milk Creek and at various lookout points facing the Delta & Montrose valley below. When the fervor of camp subsides,  you might find yourself in the company of local deer and wild turkies that frequent the grounds. At night, the Colordo sky opens up to a deep landscape full of stars and the sound of owls hooting through Surface Creek Canyon.
