Spectacular

We stayed at 3 different campsites as we took the entire Four Pass loop over four days. It was an AMAZING experience. All the campsites had amazing views, and most were incredibly private. The last campsite had the most people, which was the one by Snowmass Lake. Even though there were lots of…

Beautiful dispersed area

About 5 min up the mountain from the lakes. Lots of dispersed camping available. Our site had an amazing view of the lakes. Occasional dirt bike riding around. Some campers run loud music late into the night. Early June, lake water is very cold, but refreshing for a quick dip.

Super Clean, LNT, Pack It Out, Keep It Beautiful (and open)

Stayed 3 nights at site SR 12. Pretty close to the access road so expect dust. Nice stream nearby the camp and shade for sitting. If you enjoy hiking, mountain biking, there are some nice opportunities further up the road. There's a jeep road that goes to Paradise Divine (see photo), which is at…

Quiet, beautiful campground

Beautiful little campground between Twin Lakes and Independence Pass. Our site had a large enough space for our oversized ground tent and enough shade to keep cool in the heat of the day. Our site was adjacent to the river which provided a loud background noise that is heaven to sleep to. The views…

Lakeside camping with boat ramp and trail access

We stopped at Matchless as we needed a first come site the night before our reservations at Molly Brown. We were a bit skeptical at first as it looks like a large asphalt parking lot. The campsites all surround the parking area so you park on asphalt but are steps away from your wooded site. We…

Top tier site

4x4 recommended, I managed to get in to a deeper site with my Prius though. Bugs not bad, creek water tastes great (with filter). Some of the best views I’ve seen in CO. 20 minutes from Crested Butte. Very quiet and serene. 10/10 go here!

Secluded little campground

The Reudi reservoir is a beautiful area. Sunsets are gorgeous and there is a nice hike outside of one of the other two campgrounds in the area. I feel this little campground is the most secluded of the 4 in the area. However, not all sites offer reservoir views. Reservoir is very low this year.…

Quiet, cows, and cowboys

The campground is about 15 miles from the town of Paonia. We stayed three nights and only had one other camper in the campground. The ranch above us was moving cattle higher for the summer. As we were leaving the campground, we realized several of the cows had walked through our campsite to drink…

Hidden Gem

Chapman Campground is an awesome little place to get away. There's a huge variety of sites that will accommodate almost any camper except for large RVs. The tent sites tend to offer plenty of shade and separation from your neighbor, with water and toilets easily accessible from most locations. The…

great place to stay the night

This campground was super accessible. It was only 10 minutes from Leadville and the roads were easy to follow. The campsite was fairly full on this saturday 5/29 but there were still probably three or four spots open that evening. We even got one on the water even though we got there pretty late--…

heaven

We stayed here the night of Friday 5/28 and left in the morning. We got there around 4:30pm. A lot of the sites with trees and beautiful views on top of the hill were taken, but we scored this gem that was a bit challenging to get to. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must. You follow the rocky dirt…
