Right off​ the main road over the pass is the campground, it's paved with gravel sites and a couple of pull-throughs. There's a vault toilet and each site had a picnic table and fire ring. There's a hot spring down the road at redstone, which is free with a little hike. It's called Penny Springs and the directions of how to get to it are online. Also at the top of the pass there's a couple of trails to hike. At the campground there's a little creek which you can scramble down to if you want, from behind the vault toilet. As a bonus; two deer seem to live here and are always grazing nearby.

“Free camping in the aspens”

Reviewed Aug 09, 2016

Overall Rating

McClure is a nice enough place to stop off during extended travel, or for an easy weekend away if you're more local. It's nothing overly special, however, and not worth going out of your way for.

The campground itself has 10 sites nested deep in an aspen grove. Probably has nice color during the autumn. It's right next to CO 133, so there's a fair amount of road noise during the day, but it's quiet at night. Like many free public campgrounds, there is no water or trash service, and the only facilities are a pit toilet.

Be aware that the sites are not large; we watched a ~25' trailer go around the campground 3 times before barely managing to fit into a site. RVs larger than 25-30' are going to have a tough time here.
