Disperse Camp between Horseshoe and Four mile

Accessible by 2-WD with standard clearance, plenty of space between 4 mile campground and horseshoe campground. On the road to Mt. Sherman trailhead (4-WD and high clearance recommended for trailhead but 2-WD will get you pretty close). Lots of space and established camp sites with fire rings


There is plenty of camping away from fee area down the road. my buddy and I were planning to do Mount. massive form the North Half Moon Lake Trailhead. I have a tiny chevy hatchback that handled the road pretty well. We made it past the Elbert Trailhead, but were about 1.5 miles short of the Halfmoon Lake Trailehead. 4-WD/high clearance is ideal, but not necessary. We dispersed camped along the road at an existing campsite with a fire ring and the area was perfect.

Everything a primitive camper needs

2-WD may have trouble accessing the parking lot but should be able to get pretty close. Their is a $3 day use fee and a $12 overnight fee. The campground has an outhouse which is nice but otherwise it is very simple and spread out with beautiful views of Kite Lake, Mt. Bross, Mt. Cameron, and Mt. Democrat. You are able to hike right next to the trail head and the parking lot is nearby as well. Nice place, quiet and serene, perfect for tackling the fourteeners or a serene excursion into solitude, plenty to explore here.
