    Pack out all waste: human, garbage, paper, organics, etc.

    There are many dispersed camping opportunities in the forest ranging from backpacking to car-camping along designated Forest Roads.

Dispersed camping sites along Forest Roads are shown on Motor Vehicle Use Maps, which are available free of charge at ranger district offices.At the start of the tour you immediately have spectacular views of the Blue River Valley and the majestic Tenmile Range. The road, managed by Summit County, follows the old South Park and Pacific Railroad bed, climbing on a gradual 3% grade. The road climbs past Bakers Tank to the summit of Boreas Pass at the Continental Divide. The road then continues down the other side of Boreas Pass for another 10.4 miles to the town of Como in Park County. From 1872 to 1938 the road was used as a narrow-gauge railroad and gained fame as the nation’s highest narrow-gauge railroad, running from Como to Breckenridge. This is a great road to view Fall colors. This road is open to highway legal vehicles only during May-October, and closed to motorized vehicle access seasonally at Summit County discretion, generally October to May.

    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.

    Welcome to Red Canyon Park, nestled near Canon City, Colorado. This spot is a gem for those who appreciate rugged beauty and a bit of solitude. The park is known for its stunning red rock formations and scenic views that make it a fantastic place to explore and unwind.

    The campsites here are pretty basic but offer what you need for a comfortable stay. You'll find picnic tables and fire rings at many of the sites, though not all. Vault toilets are available, but don't expect them at every campsite. The park is free to use, which is always a nice bonus.

    One of the highlights of Red Canyon Park is its accessibility for both tent and RV camping. The sites are dispersed, giving you a sense of seclusion. Some spots are more level than others, so you might need leveling blocks if you're in a campervan or RV. The road can get a bit rough, especially after rain, so be prepared for some ruts and mud.

    Visitors have mentioned that the park is best enjoyed in the fall and spring when the weather is milder. Summer can get quite hot, so plan accordingly. The park is also a popular spot for local youth gatherings, but hopefully, your stay will be peaceful.

    For those who love to explore, there are plenty of trails and rock features to check out. Whether you're hiking along the seasonal river or climbing the red bluffs, there's something for everyone. Just remember to bring bug spray, as gnats and mosquitoes can be a nuisance.

    Overall, Red Canyon Park offers a beautiful, rugged camping experience with plenty of opportunities for adventure and relaxation. Enjoy your stay!

    The Browns Creek trail offers beautiful scenery with changing vistas and vegetation. The trail follows the stream and small waterfalls can be found along the way. The lower portion of the trail begins in primarily a Ponderosa pine environment and gradually moves into spruce/fir forest. At higher elevations the trail travels through pristine meadows that end at Brown's Lake.

    Camping is not permitted at the trailhead, in order to prevent erosion of the banks along Little Browns Creek. Campers are encouraged to find camp sites further south on County Road 272.
