    NOTE: Campers who build any fires face fines up to $5,000 and/or up to six months imprisonment for open fire violations.

    Leave No Trace must be observed, as in any outdoor space.

    In any season this area is prone to very strong dry winds that can pick up a hot coal from a campfire that has lain dormant for as much as three days and ignite dry vegetation, causing horrific devastation. People from outside Colorado may not understand how tinder dry this area can be. 197 homes in this area have been destroyed by wildfires. All of these fires were started by humans.

    Local residents overlook this area and if they see visible flame or smoke they will call the Boulder County sheriff. Any campers who require a campfire are recommended to disperse camp near Sugarloaf Mountain where fires are permitted.

    Lake George, Colorado

    Matukat Road Dispersed Camping in Colorado is a hidden gem for those who crave a more rugged and secluded camping experience. Nestled near Lake George, this area offers stunning views and a peaceful atmosphere. The sites are spread out, providing plenty of privacy, and are surrounded by young aspens, mountain flowers, and impressive rock formations.

    One of the standout features here is the abundance of firewood from fallen trees, making it easy to enjoy a cozy campfire. Just remember to bring your own water and pack out all your trash, as there are no amenities like drinking water, toilets, or trash services. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    Visitors have raved about the incredible views and the quiet, serene environment. You might spot some wildlife, including moose, coyotes, and free-range cattle. The area is also great for hiking, with plenty of trails to explore and rocks to climb. If you're lucky, you might even stumble upon a hidden spot with breathtaking vistas.

    Access to the sites is relatively easy, even for sedans, though a vehicle with reasonable clearance is recommended if you want to venture further in. The road can be a bit rough, but it's manageable if you take it slow. For those looking to cool off, a short trip to the nearby Happy Meadows campground offers river access without the need to stay there.

    Overall, Matukat Road Dispersed Camping is a fantastic spot for those seeking solitude, natural beauty, and a true back-to-nature experience. Just be prepared for a more primitive setup and enjoy the tranquility and stunning scenery this area has to offer.

      Empire, Colorado

      Welcome to Chinns Lake Dispersed Camping in Colorado! This spot is a gem for those who love a bit of adventure and don't mind roughing it. Nestled near Idaho Springs, this area offers some of the most stunning lakefront views you'll find in the state.

      Getting here is half the fun—if you enjoy a good off-road challenge. The road up is rocky and narrow, so a high-clearance 4x4 vehicle is a must. Trust me, you don't want to attempt this in a regular car. Once you make it up, you'll find plenty of dispersed campsites around the lake, each offering a peaceful retreat with plenty of space between you and your neighbors.

      One of the highlights here is the sheer beauty of the surroundings. The lake is perfect for paddleboarding, fishing, or just soaking in the views. Hiking trails around the area offer a chance to explore the rugged landscape and maybe even spot some wildlife. Just be prepared for the cold nights, especially if you're camping in the fall—temperatures can drop into the 30s.

      Keep in mind, this is a no-frills camping experience. There are no toilets, no drinking water, and no trash services, so you'll need to pack in and pack out everything. Fires aren't allowed, but many sites have rock fire rings for when restrictions are lifted. Cell service is spotty at best, so it's a great place to truly disconnect.

      If you're looking for a quiet, scenic getaway with a bit of a challenge to get there, Chinns Lake is the place for you. Just make sure you're well-prepared, and you'll have an unforgettable experience.
