Restrooms

There are as expected restrooms at this campground, and if you go for nature you will like a primitive campground like Portal Campground.
The Sawatch Range scenery is always pretty.
Alright, time for a camping trip, wouldn't you agree? Portal Campground is a fine local campground if you happen to be in Colorado.
This is a primitive campground which unsurprisingly means that there are quite few conveniences. The natural attractiveness at this primitive campground is great, and after you arrive at a primitive campground such as Portal Campground you will realize it was well worth the effort getting here. The good local attractions
 
    and such a good variety of outdoors recreation will absolutely have you coming back over and over. There are so many entertaining things right next door to Portal Campground, and it is a fine campground.
There's such a vast number
 of things to do at Portal Campground including swimming, playing golf, whitewater paddling, hiking, and fishing, so there's absolutely no way to get bored. With such a great deal of things to do in Colorado you'll never get bored. Lake Creek has a type V+ run of whitewater nearby. The 9-mile-from-start-to-finish Graham Gulch to 1/4 mi east of Monitor Gulch sector is magnificent to paddle. This run of Lake Creek is not a site where beginners should come whitewater boating. You must check circumstances in advance of a trip; whitewater boating can turn treacherous. Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park is a great national park; Grizzly Reservoir Dam is a picturesque site, absolutely worth  
going to. And if that's not enough there's a lot more amusing stuff to do in the Sawatch Range. Don't leave Portal Campground without first going for a hike along the Timberline Trail.
