Beautiful views and river access. We were the only people camping that night.
Avalanche campground is a gorgeous campground. There's no camping fee, however, the site is relatively small/has limited spaces so their first come first serve policy can be problematic in finding a spot. Bear proof storage boxes and fire pits are available for each space as well. For those without AWD/4WD vehicles I would use caution/advise against since the drive to get into the actual grounds requires a bit of off roading including crossing a creek.
Location is great! A mile walk into the quaint town of Redstone, 20min drive to Carbondale or Marble (opposite direction). Fun hikes near by and great fly fishing at the Crystal River (walking distance from campground). Hosts were great. We had site #1. Shared site but spacious with great views. No cell reception anywhere until you get to Carbondale. We drove into Redstone to get some WiFi bear the Inn.
