Hi Mtn man. I lost the link to this site so I was (temporarily) delayed in reading your reply. It's amazing that you camped at that campground because that is exactly the campground that I had narrowed down as my top selection to go camping next spring/summer. It is now called East Portal Campground and, as you indicated, is now run by Larimar County. From what I've read, they are doing a good job. It's hard to know which site to select as the campground map doesn't really show you the topography. It would be nice to know which campsites accommodate a flat(ish) area for a decent size tent.
I didn't notice that it had been so long since you posted these pics. Of course, by now, any details about the campground would be difficult to remember.
If anyone is interested, here is a link to website with the campground map.

You were there at just the right time. Most of the trails are covered with heavy snow and ice. I was there a couple of summers ago quite often. Nice photos.

Great shots, my only time out west was with film, 2 Pentax bodies and several lenses but your shots turned out better, nice job.

pbesherse, I'm digging very deep into my dim memory, but my best guess is that I stayed at campsite #A22 or A23. I recall that it was in the farthest back loop from the office and entrance area. I also recall that I had to park my rental car and carry all my gear about 30 yards up a small path to the camp site. I had a 10' x 10' tent, and it fit in the leveled out area with a bit of extra room. (Yes, it was very impractical to fly with such a large tent. But it was nice having all that room, and my little 5' x 7' pup tent was pretty much torn to tatters and unusable.) It was a very nice campground, and I'm sure that any camp site will be enjoyable.
