5 Reviews of Lower Blue Lake Dispersed Camping
Absolute magic.

Parked and camped below the trail head in the dispersed camping there. It was full of shade and a river flowing through it. Will be back.

Little piece of paradise

We camped just near the trailhead. Hike was challenging but well worth it. Please be prepared. Many folks we saw were not. Our campsite was at the end of the road on a creek that was perfect for our post hike feet!

my favorite in the area

my favorite place in the area. the wildflowers are insane during the summer! there is a nice wooded area where there are numerous places to camp it’s right next to lower blue lake. there is lower blue lake, which you get to in around 3 miles in from trailhead off cr 7 from hwy 145. then there’s middle blue lake another mile or two up, then theres upper blue lake further up towards mt. sneffels.

Great spot before Mt Sneffels!

Make sure to pack light, the walk is steep! Camping here is so beautiful and just above Yankee Boy Basin. Mt Sneffels trailhead is right there too.

My Favorite Place to Hike in Telluride Area

Blue lakes campsites are about 3 miles in at the lower Blue Lake. From there, hike 2.5 miles to get to the Blue Lakes Saddle below Sneffels, and continue up to summit this great 14'er.
