This is what boondocking is all about! Gorgeous views, no one around, free, and I had great Verizon LTE signal so I was able to work without any issues! I was shocked that no other campers were here when I arrived on a Wednesday, a few showed up before the holiday weekend kicked off. The dirt road was a little intimidating fo... more

NAVIGATING: This site is located off County Road 24 in Twin Lakes, CO. The county road is paved and fairly easy to navigate. Once you get to the turn off, you'll encounter a dirt road leading up to the GPS coordinates. The beginning of the dirt road is very rutted and a bit intimidating. We did pull our 25 ft Airstream up it very car... more

“Amazing views! ”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2017

Overall Rating

A beautiful place to spend a few nights. The road is paved almost all the way here. Maybe 200 yards of dirt road to get to the best views. A little steep and bumpy at first but it evens out. Plenty of fallen wood to collect for a fire.

“Amazing spot. Huge views”

Reviewed Sep 21, 2016

Overall Rating

If you can claim the spot at the map pin, you got one of the best places you can imagine. Huge views of twin lakes below and the mountains beyond. Don't let the road in scare you away, it is worth it. We pulled a 27 foot trailer up. Be warned, don't expect privacy. People come up all day long to take in the view as well. Some will c... more

“Free Million Dollar Views”

Reviewed Dec 15, 2015

Overall Rating

One of the most scenic boondocking spots I've camped in. This spot is a nice sized turn out at the top of 24 about a half mile before the coordinates that are listed. Stayed in this spot over the 4th of July and didn't have any neighbors nearby. The views looking out over the lakes and Independence Pass are super sexy. As I've stated i... more
