This is nice for quick getaway - easy drive from Denver and right at Kenosha Pass which has fall beautiful colors. We bought a new pop up tent and had to try it out arrived in the dark and awoke to beautiful fall colors - hiking trails closeby. Vault toilets very clean only about 20 sites forest service campground. Rating reflects some highway noise closeby only downside
We usually go to the paid area, but found the free area this time and found even more delightful things. Privacy, adventure, animal bones and man made wooden teepees.
Great campground right on Colorado Trail section 6. Family friendly with vault toilets, potable water, and very nice campground hosts. Currently under a fire ban due to the dry conditions but don’t let that discourage you! The campground is right off the highway so there is some traffic noise and a few of the spots are close together but overall a great campground, easy location, and perfect for backpacking!
Nice campground that backs right up to the Colorado Trail. Plenty of toilets and dumpsters and I didn't have any problems with wildlife. Dog-friendly!
Note there are two Kenosha Pass Campgrounds and one has East in name and is very bumpy but beautiful (Aspens!) with no numbers. The one you can reserve, without "East" has a lot of aspen trees and some pines. It's beautiful but one can hear the highway! The easy trail along the grounds is an enchanting young aspen forest that leads up from parking lot at highway. There was plenty of kindling to fetch for the fire. Site 15 on the inside has some shade but wouldn't reserve this site again because it is so close to two neighbors. The outer circle sites are better and some like 11 even have cool rock boulders to camp by. The bathroom near us had no lock on the door. The pump water is rusty so good for dishes. Best part of this campsite is that there are a lot of trees. Worse part, the highway.
This campground is beautiful and it is right on the Colorado Trail. Several spots are large enough for a big camper, but the tight curves on the loop and thick trees make it a little questionable for maneuvering. The bathrooms were clean and the campground quiet.
