2 Reviews of Gothic Canyon dispersed camping 1
Small, quiet, clean

Small USFS campground with fee. Looked like there were about 6 spots, fairly close together but good tree cover in the camp. Vault toilet at the entrance but no other amenities (trash, water). No campground host here. Beautiful canyon with fishing and hiking near!

Beautiful views of gothic canyon

Dispersed camping just past gothic campground, to the north. Sign posted “GC1” where we turned off. There were 5 well spaced fire rings. Most spots had tree cover and some protection. Would easily be able to get a small/medium camper in. We liked the balance of tree cover, yet wide open spaces, meadows, and epic views of the canyon all around. It did rain while we camped which made the road extremely muddy. 4x4 and decent clearance recommended, saw a few cars get stuck in the mud. We hiked nearby Judd falls, and had plans to hike Washington Gulch (trailhead was within walking distance). If you can make it, the drive north to emerald lake has amazing views. Signs posted in the canyon indicated that camping was only allowed in the established gothic campground June 15th through August 15th.
