We stayed here on 2 different occasions, 2 14 day stints with a small break in between, and we would have stayed longer if we were allowed. This spot is pretty perfect.

The best boondocking in Colorado! Views, privacy, wildflowers, nearby hiking and biking trails, and only a 10 minutes drive into downtown Crested Butte. At nearly 9,000 ft. this is a great spot to camp if you want to get away from the summer heat. Farther up Washington Gulch Rd. there are a few more potential camping sites, but the roa... more
