I stayed here in a tent for 3 days. It was a blast and a great experience! The campground is right next to the gate to drive up to the top of Mount Evans. You have Echo Lake Lodge right there with a great gift shop, a bar that also serves food! There is Resthouse Trail #57 that is a nice little…
Good amount of space between spots, lots of lovely tree cover and near a great hike.
There is a lodge close by in case you want a hot meal at some point as well.
Pit toilets were exactly as you’d expect.
I came in from out of state and got pretty altitude effected so we had to cut the trip…
why pay to stay at echo lake when you can go up 103 and find great dispersed spots? I frequently camp here due to views, fire pits and close proximity to Denver.
Echo Lake is located in Colorado
