Higher Elevation

This rating is based solely on the beauty of this place. Coffe Pot Road is located near Dotsero, CO. We were looking for a place to set up and a ranger at Hanging Lake told us about this place and the locals agreed! The scenic drive up is very narrow, some places only one car can pass at a time, so drive slow and be careful. It includes several types of trees, rock formations, wildlife, wild flowers and vast mountain views! If you want to feel like you are really camping in the wilderness (which you kinda are) then don't pass this place up! The road itself goes up about 10,500 feet in elevation ending in Deep Lake then decenends down. Coffe Pot Springs Campground is about 16 miles up in the White River National Forest and features large, very secluded sites with a rock made fire pit. We did see a porta house down the gravel road a little ways, no other amenities that we saw. We set up our tent at around 8,000 ft in elevation and enjoyed the view, it was literally what dreams are made of! During the night we heard Elk and it was so dark that we saw the milky way!!!
