Campground Trail starts at Bullfrog Lake and makes it way to the middle of Turf. There are a small number of punchy climbs and fast and flowy downhills, and a couple of mostly dry creek crossings. This trail is fun in both directions, but the middle section is the most fun in the eastbound direction.
