Excellent Camping Spot!

Cruising up the dirt road wasn't bad and easily maneuverable for smaller cars. Lots of spots just off the road - we had no trouble finding space on a Friday. I would recommend getting as far away from the road as possible though; there are cars heading up the road at all hours of the night either getting in late or trying to get on the trail early.

Loved camping at Winfield for Huron hike

Road to campground is ok, our van had no issues. Camping sites along the road looked good, we camp at the end of the road at the open area. Not crowded at all on a weekday. Beautiful scenery all around.

Huron Peak Overnight

This area was perfect for the Huron Peak overnight so that we could get an early start. Drive in was pretty easy and very scenic for fall colors.

Lots of sites scattered on the road up to the Winfield Historic Mining site.

When you turn left at and go over the creek there is a wide open space to just setup anywhere. Limited tree cover, so if you want more privacy from neighbors look for some of the sites along the road. This area did have an outhouse so if the super primitive camping is not your style this is great.

Perfect for hiking Huron Peak

Parked just before 4 wd was needed. Perfect spot for a pre 14er hike. Plenty of sites for tents or campers. No bathrooms, water, or hookups.

Beautiful scenery

If you make it to the 4x4 road, it's very scenic and peaceful. Views of the mountains, lake and creeks my Subaru made it up there. There is a moderade traffic

Camping area is very large, secluded

Winfield has incredible access to surrounding 14ers but the road to get there is long and rocky. Crack a cold one at the lake, you’ll want it for the ride in.

Huron Peak Camp

A group of my coworkers and I camped here before going to climb Huron Peak. One of our members went up on Thursday to stake out a good spot for us before the rest of us arrived on Friday. There are some great areas to set up a large camp, but availability fills up quick. On the site, there is a men's and women's outhouse. There is a very rough ~2mile road up to the trailhead for Huron peak that requires a 4x4 vehicle with good clearance to get there, our friend had a Jeep Grand Cherokee and made it up while being cautious. It rained a bit each day that our group stayed there, but not for very long. Chilly nights still in July - approx mid 40's (F) at night so make sure to bring enough warm cloths and sleeping things. This was also one of the only spots in Colorado where the fire ban was lifted, so we were able to have a (very well controlled) campfire.

Tough to get to, but perfect for hiking Huron Peak

There is free dispersed camping all along County Road 390, near Winfield. You will need a 4x4 or AWD to get further along the road. There’s a stream that runs along 390, adding great background noise. Our site was big enough for multiple cars, with great access to the Huron Peak trailhead.
