Pickle Gulch Campground is a group picnic and camping facility located just off the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway/Highway 119. Visitors enjoy the area for its scenic and off-roading driving, and nearby hiking and fishing opportunities.
Pickle Gulch offers day-use picnic sites and six campsites to accommodate large groups. The group campsites are all walk-to sites for tent camping only. Each campsite is equipped with picnic tables, a campfire circle and tent pads. Vault toilets and drinking water spigots are shared between sites. A separate day-use area contains two volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, picnic tables and a vault toilet. Firewood may be purchased from the host if available. There are no electric/water/sewer hook-ups at this campground.
