“Seriously one of the most scenic spots you can find. ”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2018

Overall Rating

I love this place. It's not great if you are looking to be near lots of amenities, as Leadville is not chock full of them, and the other closest place you have is Aspen, up and over the pass. Not even open all year. I stayed in the same exact spot as reviewer 4D, per their photo. Surprised they got back there... I have a 24' trave... more

Even after a week of mostly staring at the lakes and mountains I was still not tired of looking at them, seeing this view is almost beyond belief. I cannot imagne what this place with look like with all the Aspen trees as the leaves turn bright orange in the fall. This location of 82 & CR24, as you go up CR24 into the first corner this... more

“Breathtaking Views and Loads of Space!”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2016

Overall Rating

I moved into this site late in the day on Memorial Day as the crowds thinned out and headed home. This is a popular site among regular campers to the area because of its breathtaking views, relative ease of access, and it offers some protection from the wind. The driveway to the site is just past the first big bend on Country Road 24 a... more

“One of my favorite spots in Colorado”

Reviewed Dec 15, 2015

Overall Rating

I love Twin Lakes. This is definitely one of my favorite spots in Colorado. Great boondocking over looking the beautiful Twin Lakes, Independence Pass, and in the shadows of Mt. Elbert the tallest mountain in Colorado, 2nd tallest in the lower 48. There is not a whole nearby when it comes to towns, so stock up in Buena Vista or Leadvil... more
