So if you go to the end of the road, top of the hill, you can overlook the tree lines and see some pretty breathtaking views. It was very windy at the top of the hill so tent campers, beware... not much shade or trees at the top of the hill near the fire pit but enough nearby to find some reprieve from the sun during the day if there ... more

We spent one night here in our travels back towards Denver. The spot at the very top is outstanding, the last few hundred feet are horribly rutted and you would need 4x4 to access. If you are ok parking and walking in then you get the best spot. When you initially turn down the road it splits. We stayed down at the end of the left spli... more

My wife and I camped here for a couple weeks. Epic view. Somewhat exposed and windy, but at over 10,000’ it remains tolerable in mid summer.

Not from the steamboat. Up the road from the snow mobile tours at steamboat. My car made it just fine back the dirt road. I had 2-3 bars of 4G LTE on Verizon.

There are a lot of sites out here.

OK so we were looking to find a place where we can enjoy our stay with a really nice view for us and our family. So we did a little research on campsites especially those that were free until I ran into this website and read reviews about this place. It was our first campsite to check out and we went around the Steamboat area -f... more

First you have to get up on Rabbit Ears Pass (a 3000+ foot gain over Steamboat Springs), then you need to navigate 3.5 miles of dirt/gravel road (2WD just fine) to get to the end of County Road 302. And finally, another 1/8 mile of nasty, mean, rutted, rocky, dangerous path and you are rewarded - if you do not damage anything - with on... more
