    Carbondale, Colorado

    Welcome to Four Mile Road Dispersed Camping Area in the Sopris Ranger District of White River National Forest, Colorado. This spot is a gem for those who crave a true off-the-grid experience. It's open year-round and offers a rugged, no-frills camping adventure.

    This area is perfect for both tent and RV camping, though you'll need to be self-sufficient. There are no amenities like drinking water, toilets, or electric hookups, so come prepared. Fires are allowed, and you'll find plenty of natural firewood around, but remember to follow fire safety guidelines.

    Visitors rave about the stunning views and the sense of seclusion. Whether you're nestled in a dense forest or perched on a hill with panoramic vistas, the scenery here is unbeatable. Some campers have even reported hearing turkeys gobbling in the morning, adding to the wilderness charm.

    The location is also a great base for exploring nearby attractions. Hanging Lake and Iron Mountain Hot Springs are less than an hour away, making for perfect day trips. The roads can get bumpy, so a vehicle with good clearance is recommended, especially if you plan to venture deeper into the area.

    Cell service is spotty to non-existent, which many visitors see as a plus. It's a chance to disconnect and truly immerse yourself in nature. Just be sure to clean up after yourself and leave no trace, as some campers have noted finding trash left behind by others.

    In short, if you're looking for a beautiful, secluded spot to camp without the crowds and conveniences of more developed sites, Four Mile Road Dispersed Camping Area is the place to be. Enjoy the peace, the views, and the adventure!
