Quiet, remote gem along a beautiful babbling brook

Wonderful, quiet site along a little-used forest road. We had the site at the end of the road, which is very close to the babbling brook, leading to Mill Falls. Plenty of space at this site, although the other three main sites are smaller and closer together. There are two overflow sites nearer to the road entrance that are more private and bigger, but they didn't seem to have fire rings and picnic tables. 

We loved this site in July - great shade for hot summer days, the cooling brook nearby, and no mosquitoes!! Facilities included a long-drop (vault) toilet. While there was no potable water available, you can collect washing water from the fast-running stream. 

The site is a great location for exploring the trails on the Front Range. The nearby hike to 'Our Lake' is about 1.5hrs (roundtrip) from the trailhead at the end of the road. This was one of our favorite hikes in the area. It's relatively flat for the first 1 hour and then gets steeper, along good switchbacks, for the final 30 mins. Highly recommended! 

If you are in this area and looking for a quiet, remote campsite, I highly recommend this one!

  • Spacious campsite at the end of the road. Cooling shade, plenty of flat spots for tents, and lots of trees for hammocks!
  • Perfect place for our REI Camp Dome 6 (10'x10').
  • The stunning hike to 'Our Lake'
  • 'Our Lake' - approximately 1.5hr hike from the trailhead
  • View down the waterfall from 'Our Lake'
