Pleasant High-Country Camping.

This is a basic Forest Service campground, but it's good one with lots of space at the sites and ample room to drive in and out. Access to the South Mt. Elbert Trailhead is a short walk, and it's a short drive to swim in Twin Lakes, drive up Independence Pass, or fish in the Arkansas headwaters. Only 10 minutes to Leadville, as well. 

The pit toilets were clean and there's water spigots throughout the campground so you don't have to walk far for dish water or drinking water. Firewood bundles were available at the campground manager's trailer for $5. 

It's not luxury camping, but it's pretty darn good.
