Climbers choice

If you didn’t come here to climb be prepared to make some friends that climb. The site is about 100 yards from one of Colorado’s most sought after climbing destinations. The camp ground offers spacious group sites and individual ones, the group sites are much more privatized from the other sites on the campground. The views of southern Colorado are gorgeous, the facilities are on the newer side which was lovely. Cool 4x4 trails you can access along with a few hikes, but this is where you want to be if you’re looking to do some rock climbing
