Camping on the Grassland falls into two categories: established site or primitive dispersed camping.
Established site camping is available at the Cimarron Recreation Area located 4 miles E of Hwy 27 along the gravel road FS700, south of the river. There are 14 sites at this campground, some pull-throughs, with restroom facilties, water shydrants, tables, charcoal grills, stocked fishing ponds, and hiking trails. Most of the facilities at this site are handicapped-accessible, and there is a fishing dock provided for handicapped users. The nightly fee for a campsite is $7.00 and reservations are not available. ONLY charcoal fires and gas camp stoves are permitted in this area, no open campfires. Livestock corrals are located just north of the Recreation area, and are usually available for use, as livestock are not permitted within the Recreation Area
Primitive dispersed camping is permitted anywhere on the Grassland, except in the Cimarron Recreation Area, the Cottonwood & Middle Springs Picnic Grounds and Point of Rocks. There is no fee for this camping.
There is a maximum of 14 days of camping occupancy in any one spot for both primitive dispersed and developed site camping. After 14 days, campers must move their campsite.
Address: 7 miles N of Elkhart on Highway 27; 4 miles E on FS 700
