“Muddy mountain roads when rains but worth the drive ”

Reviewed Aug 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Great spot if you get there early during the week. We got there late Friday night when it was raining. The dirt mountain roads became a little sketchy pulling a camper, but we got to a site safe and sound. We also had to drive 45 to an hour back into the National Forrest as all the close spots were taken, but it’s also free so you can’... more

“Beautiful place with several campgrounds and trails”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first time at Stillwater and we had a blast. We camped at two different beautiful campgrounds and went on a hike to Lost Lake! The campsites were pretty clean and there are sites for miles and miles off CR4 so you can be as close to or as far away from the start of the pass as you'd like. We saw a moose and lots of other w... more

“Great Location Close to Grand Lake”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2018

Overall Rating

There are a ton of sites up this road and also the one next to it...for miles, depending how far into the forest you want to venture. Not all of the sites have cell coverage (Verizon) but we did close to the top of the ridge. (Same GPS location as the Singh's) Most sites were large enough to have multiple rigs together. One weekend we ... more

“Lovely boondocking only 15 minutes from Grand Lake”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We love this place! There are a couple spots at the start of the road, but the best spots are a bit farther up. The road is so smooth, no bumps or even washboard for quite a while, and not too curvy either. We made it easily in our 24 foot class c. We LOVE our site, it has a gorgeous view of the mountains and is just a bit farther ... more

“Alright just for a night”

Reviewed Jun 05, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped here on our we from Rocky Natl Park to Colorado Natl Monument. Nice and quiet with a beautiful breakfast outside. But stupid people left trash like cans and pieces of glas. We tried to clean it as good as possible. But be aware not suitable to let your baby crawl on the ground. Please clean up after your self!

The area was pretty packed when we got here so we ended up going further up the mountains for a spot. We ended up finding a great little area that was great for solar.

“Good option”

Reviewed Aug 24, 2016

Overall Rating

Stayed here early Jul-16 which served as a fantastic base camp whilst visiting Rocky Mountain NP. There are various locations suitable for large RV's and we were lucky enough to find a spot with enough isolation. As others have already said, lots of ATV's and we also hard quite a lot of gun shooting off in the distance. While not... more

“Busy spot in a busy National Forest District”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2016

Overall Rating

We originally tried to stay off Vasquez Road near Winter Park but it was packed! Not even room for an overnight. We found Stillwater Pass to be a little less busy but still extremely popular with ATVs. We arrived on a Saturday and found a spot jammed in among a couple of 5th wheels and a pop up camper. It wasn't bad, but not the most i... more

“Boondocking among the pines”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2016

Overall Rating

This location is an easy drive to get to from both Fort Collins and the 70. You have your choice to hang out at two lakes. Granby Lake and Grand Lake. Both are beautiful, but Grand Lake has more options and is a little more touristy. You are also close to the west entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park. It is worth the drive ... more

My last time here (from previous review) was back in 2013 and I had the place to myself... basically. Three years later (same month of year) and the place was packed full. OHV traffic (along with the noise and dust) was much heavier although still mostly respectful. By Friday afternoons, you will have dozens of trailers coming in, many... more
