Dispersed camping sites were a life saver!

Super clean and accessible sites with easy access to the Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive trailheads. There’s a water spicket across from the Elbert trailhead in the main campgrounds that was a lifesaver.

Beautiful location, very pricey for primitive sites

Arcadia lake is an absolutely beautiful area but central state park is overpriced for what it offers and trying to find whether a site was already rented is almost impossible.

Crazy roads, beautiful views!

Finding the campground was a bit weird a sketchy. The roads leading into the site go from paved, to dirt, to sand/dirt with 1ft+ deep ruts on each side. There were times where we could hear cars coming not because of the engine but the body of the car scraping along the ground! Once found, it's one of the best campsites around. The sites are all spread generously apart so it doesn't feel crowded if it's filled, there are bear boxes spread throughout the campsites, and the views are absolutely breath taking.

10/10 would recommend this site but make sure you have a vehicle with 4WD and decent clearance.
