Best Places to Camp in Colorado
1) Oh Be Joyful Campground
Located near Crested Butte, this camping site not only has a good name but has an excellent location. This place serves as an entrance to the Rangers desert. That is a natural forest of 65,000 acres and has an altitude between 7,000 to 13,000 feet. In addition to the excellent views, campers can go hiking, fishing, and cycling.
2) Maroon Bells
One of the most famous spots in the state of Colorado. They are a pair of mountains of 14,000 feet, which is one of the most photographed sites in all of North America. For camping, there are three sites in the shadow of the mountain, and each one of them has access to a spectacular natural environment. It includes Lake Marron. The sites are Silver Bar, Silver Bell, or Silver Queen.
3) Camp Piñon Flats
Located in Great Sand Dunes National Park. Here you can have a very different camping experience. This place looks more like the Sahara than the Rocky mountains. There are large sand waves of 700 feet.
4) Pass Guanella
Located in the Pike National Forest, at 11,670 feet. It is one hour from Denver by car. Those who like to walk can also reach the pass on foot.
