Road is so-so but worth the incredible views. Everything was fairly spread out and the best spots are towards the very top!

I stayed one Sunday night, August 11, 2019. The Dry Lake campground was full like I thought it’d be so I traversed ahead. Once you cross the gate past the paid campground the road will get rougher, but it was nothing any car couldn’t handle. Getting up to the place I camped would be another issue.

A mile and a half before the pin drop there is a very steep hill on the left that takes you to some awesome campsites. At least 4-5 campsites back here. If you keep going down the road there are plenty of other pull of sites. As there were a couple of pull off sites even before the place I camped, past the paid campground of course.

The sunset here is absolutely incredible. Tall aspens and beautiful skies. In the morning a fellow camper told me he saw a black bear cub wandering around his site, and apparently he has a twin!

Just a twenty minute(ish) drive from Steamboat Springs, this campsite and its views can’t be beat!

Sprint service was very spotty, enough to get a text out but not much else.
