Caribou Townsite

It was a really nice area and felt super secluded. Campsites we’re not clearly marked or visible which was kinda fun. One of the craziest roads I have driven down. Seriously you will not enjoy it if you don’t have a great 4x4. Not worth the hassle in an SUV unless you pull off right when you get…

  • Just a taste of how crazy the road was. This was one of the easy parts.

Directions

NFSR 505 is seasonally open from around late June or early July through late October or November in most years. Directions: From Nederland, follow Colorado Highway 72 west for 0.5 miles from the traffic circle. Turn west on County Road 128 and follow it five miles to Five Points (identified by the five-way intersection; loosely-organized parking area and gated roads). Numbered campsites are scattered along both segments of NFSR 505 and its off-shoots within 1.5 miles of Five Points.
