This site is on Marshall Pass Road off of highway 285. The dispersed sites are near the intersection of Marshall Pass Road and Forest Service Rod 200. This intersection at the base off the access road up to Ohaver Lake Campground. The primitive sites are spread along the creek just off the Forest Service Road. Like many dispersed camps, the sites only have flat cleared areas with fire pits and no other amenities. The area is a great spot for ATV Riders to trailer into area as well as horse trailers to park and access the mountain roads and trails. The location is not the best for scenery and can get busy in the summer especially on weekends since it’s so close to the highway and Salida, Colorado.
We love camping here with our four wheelers. Tons of beautiful trails with lots to see! Also close to O’Haver lake for some fishing.
We camped off of County Road 203. We showed up late and everything along Marshall Pass Rd was occupied. We had great scenery, mountain peaks and beaver ponds. There were sites you could pull into off of the road, but we car camped along the side since we were leaving early. Finding a spot can be difficult, but the views and location are nice.
This is a good spot to stop overnight if your destination is further south on 285. The best part about this section is the creek next to the road. All the spots on the lower part of Marshall Pass are pull offs on the road. I imagine this can get busy in the peak summer time. Was quiet and the only traffic was in the morning.
