Awesome riverside camping

Went through the camp on foot this week, looking for a picnic spot on our road trip. This was an awesome campsite and I would love to come back. Campground was closed this late in the season. Great picnic tables, fire rings, vault toilets, water available, and clear info signs. River running through campground which was awesome for the dogs!

Great dispersed camping

We found great dispersed spots along FSR 239. Roads were gravel and a little rough in some spots, but plenty of camping accessible by smaller cars as well. Lots of OHV trails nearby.

Plenty of spots left Labor Day weekend. Nice tree cover and distance between other campers. Sites had natural fire pit rings and fallen trees nearby for firewood. Not as much OHV noise as we expected but we did leave to go to the reservoir to fish during the day. We loved the large sites and the sunsets at night. Disappointed to find some garbage and broken glass at our spot, but didn’t take away from our weekend. Vault toilets about 15 minute drive away if needed.

Great spot near fishing

Enjoyed our weekend at blue mountain campground. Were able to make a reservation 3 weeks before with plenty of spots still available. Camp hosts were friendly and courteous. 2 vault toilets in the camp that were well maintained. Large sites for tenting or a camper. All sites had picnic table and fire pit ring. Some road noise can still be heard in the site.

One of the highlights was walking to the campground entrance to watch the sunset each night. Spent a day fishing and hiking the 11 mile canyon overlook trail.

Hard rock trailhead located in the campground

Peaceful dispersed camping

Great place for dispersed camping in San Isabel. We chose a tent site up 274 at the end of the road late Friday evening. Still plenty of spots available! Recommend the hike to browns lake nearby. Vault toilets at the trailhead if needed.

Our spot was right off the Colorado trail, lots of thru hikers going by. Originally we had wanted to stay at iron city campground (first come first serve) but all spots were taken. It was a happy mistake because we liked dispersed camping here better 🙂

First to Review

Looks to no longer be a campground. Overgrown with weeds and blocked by a gate. Sorry for low quality picture.

Great weekend at lynx pass!

Great spot for a weekend of tenting! Plenty of spots available when we came in late on Friday night. Dumpster, vault toilets, and water pump available. No campground host or firewood available. $10 a night fee. We stayed in spot 10 which offered nice tree cover and a clearing to watch the sun set. A pond within walking distance was stocked with trout for some fishing. Tons of ohv and mountain bike trails nearby. Tons of wildflowers in July! Great place to get away from road noise.

Awesome tent site

Love this camp, I have been multiple times. Near a variety of hiking trails and streams. Camp was very clean and quiet with great hosts!

Great getaway

River hill was a great spot for a weekend getaway. We did not have a reservation but were still able to get a spot on a Saturday afternoon. Camp was well maintained, clean vault restrooms, and horseshoes/frisbee golf on site. We hiked the trailhead to box canyon which starts at the campground and it was beautiful. Spent time fishing in the river that ran by the campsite. Would love to come again!
