First of all I have a hard time describing this spot: Amazing, fantasic, one of a kind, one of the best ever etc just do not do it justice!!!! I suggest to look at the pictures. I am posting 3 with fall colors.... We ended up camping in between the two free camp sites on Campendium. We took the second dirt road of CR24 and follwed it ... more

Thank you so much for the correct information. The elevation is 9700'. The days are plain beautiful, the weather however is unpredictable, it rains one day, and sunny the next. It gets really cold and windy once the sun goes down. Overall it is still a lovely place! ❣️

Just clarifying another reviewers post. It is not at 12,500' elevation. The elevation in the description of 9700' is accurate.

We really enjoy this place a lot. The elevation is about 12,500 feet high, so there will be breezy mornings , cold evenings and night, occasionally high winds. The views are exceptionally breathtaking, the location is easy to get in, the roads are packed dirt and gravel, we have a travel trailer and the drive in is absolutely accessi... more

“INCREDIBLE Views with plenty to do close!”

We stayed here Labor Day weekend ‘18 and got here Friday morning to secure a spot. There ended up being two open spots all the way up until Sunday. I was surprised honestly but I guess the weather wasn’t supposed to be the best. There’s a nice hike across the lake where you can see an old 1880s resort (around 5 miles round trip?). ... more

Like others said, the dirt road may be a challenge for some, we used 4WD and took it slow and no issues. We parked by the 2 lone pine trees, very exposed to the wind. We would get big gusts during the day and at night, coming from the Northwest. Don't put your awning out, the gusts came with no warning. Another small RVer already p... more

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! ”

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.
