any camping at hanging lake?

I have 3 kids under 9 years old I don't think they would make it up and back in the same day. Can we camp up there or is it not allowed.

Hi, Welcome to TripAdvisor. There is no camping at Hanging Lake. Here's a good link to some more info about the hike. A big thank you goes out to the Boy Scouts for maintenance they do on the trail. http://www.hikingincolorado.org/hang.html

For a complete list of hiking trails in the Aspen/Basalt/Carbondale area (all not far from Glenwood) check out this link - …usda.gov/activity/…

Perhaps one of these trails would be more enjoyable for you and your sons.

Thanks for confirming that, SusieLou. I had posted that there was no camping but then couldn't find anything to verify my initial "gut reaction," so removed the post. I know it's a very fragile area.

Ooops, just reread the original posting and realized that it said children, not sons. Sorry.
