What a great campground! I came from St. Pete, FL and camped by myself in a tent for 4 days. I was had site 25 and what I loved about that site, is it has a stream along side of it, not the river. The sound of the stream the whole time is nice. The campground itself was really convenient... More

We stayed here a week and loved almost every minute of it. The sites are spread out and surrounded by trees. Some have creeks running through them. I don't think there is a bad site in the whole place, except maybe the ones next to the bathrooms. There is a bike trail that connects with the town of Aspen. There... More

This campground has been designed so that each site is fairly private, but still accessible. The picnic table, fire ring, and tent site were in good shape. A couple of tiny streams run through the grounds, so many sites have the sound of running water. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and have good firewood for sale. During the day... More

We really enjoyed staying here. The bathrooms where very clean for a campground and our hosts where nice. It was also fun listening to the mountain sounds as we slept, we swear we heard a wolf call one night and an elk the next. We strung up solar christmas lights at night and enjoyed the mountain air. Highly recommend.

My husband and I camped here for 2 nights. It is a really beautiful campsite. We were surrounded by aspens and could hear the roaring fork river from our site. We enjoyed seeing deer walking in the woods right by us. My advice: If you are tent camping, bring earplugs! There was a very noisy bird who chirped from 4am... More

We stayed at site #21 with another couple - so two tents on the property and it fit us comfortably - there was easily room for even another tent. We stayed at this property the last week of June. Other reviews has warned of highway noise but this was not a problem for us at all. The highway is two-lane... More

There are so many things I love about this place. Each campsite is surrounded by aspens and near the Roaring Fork. Imagine going to sleep to the sound of quaking aspens and water. It is so peaceful. Campsites are good sizes, feel private yet not solitary. Bathrooms are clean. And there is no cell service so you can really unplug... More

We were looking for a simple overnight place to park our 32 ft RV and this was just what we needed. The sites are all fairly secluded and easy to get into. They did not offer and services like electric, water and sewer, but that was ok for our needs.

Spent only a night here, located 4 miles out of Aspen in the forest along the road leading to independence pass. Around 24 spots available to book in advance (minimum 3d) or 1st come if available. Large spots with many trees, fire/grill, table. Plenty of clean toilet facilities but no showers. Firewood available to purchase. Being at elevation in a... More
