One of several popular small campgrounds along Chalk Creek, Chalk Lake Campground is quite nice, especially for larger family groups. It is located a short walk from the popular Chalk Lake fishing area.
Sites are distributed around one small loop road, with the lower-numbered sites located along the creek under heavy tree cover and the higher-numbered sites in an exposed area with little shade but awesome views of Mount Princeton and Mount Antero. Many of the sites along the creek are configured in pairs with one large parking area for four cars and a walk down stairs to the flat banks of the creek with lots of tent sites.
This has the amenities of a typical Colorado national forest primitive campground, with vault toilets and drinking water from a hand pump. All sites are reserveable, and the popularity of this campground makes having a reservation a good idea.
