There are 10 campsites available. Trailhead access to Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness is across the road. Two miles to the east is the ghost town of Independence, an early mining town. Lost Man Family Campground is situated directly across Independence Pass road from Lost Man Trailhead. The campsites are within a lodgepole pine forest at 10,500' above sea level.
This campsite is small with only 10 spots, so it isn’t overrun with people which is awesome! There are toilets and a water spout, as well as fire pits at each campsite. It’s nice, quiet, and has a stream flowing right next to it. The real amazing part though is the access to Lost Man Trail right across the street. Easy hike to amazing views of the mountains, valley, and water features. Also a quick drive into Aspen and nearby trails. We will definitely be back here.
