  1. Phyllis Bauman says:

    Are generators allowed at Bockman campgroud

  2. Roger Fain says:

    This statement is confusing, “Bockman campground does take reservations from mid May to late September, but non-reserved sites are available on a first come/first serve basis during the summer and winter….”.
    I understand the off-peak month’s are available to first come-first served, but where are the non-reserved site’s located during the summer? Thanks!!! Roger

    • Hi Roger,
      Thanks for your comment! I’ll try and clarify in the overview. Basically though – if a reservable campsite is not reserved, then the campground will allow someone to showing up without a reservation to stay at the site.

  3. Thom Wright says:

    In the Amenities, it says that there are showers at Bockman. I’ve been through that campground several times and never seen any showers. Where are they located?

  4. Roger Bockman says:

    I am very curious, who was the namesake for this campground? My understanding is Bockman is a misspelling of Bachmann, and I have never encountered another Bockman (with the exception of relatives).

    I saw a sign for this campground one time driving through CO and it had puzzled me endlessly ever since—as far as I knew we were all confined to the eastern midwest. Thanks in advance for your help!

  5. Lynna Sampsell says:

    Was this area part of the wildfires last summer/fall?
