Very serene! i will be back!
Very private mountaintop campsite! Anthony was very nice and called us prior to our arrival with detailed instructions. A little mixup with some folks on ATVs blocking the actual site roads (not their fault, they were gathering for pictures and probably didn’t realize we were attempting to camp there, and we didn’t notice the roads behind them!) had us lost for a bit, but we found it! Very secluded and quiet!
I would let people know that if you’re looking at the Cumberland Pass sign, two roads to the left of the sign are the roads to the site. It’s literally the top of Cumberland Pass! Also, we made it up the mountain, it’s not impossible, but definitely be prepared for a rocky, uneven terrain that’s pretty rough for a sedan. I have a Honda Civic, and we made it after an unfortunate loss of my skid plate, but that’s what they’re for! The roads coming up from Tin Cup are much easier on vehicles than coming up from Pitkin. There is a lot of ATV and Dirtbike traffic, so please be confident sharing the roads!
All in all, this is an amazing place! The views are unmatched and there is a lot to explore. It being the top of a mountain, bring heavier stakes for your tent and extra pads or sleeping bags if you don’t have cots or a camper.
You cannot beat the price for these views and the exploration of the areas around Cumberland Pass!
Tony and his grandkids were incredibly welcoming! The campsite was absolutely beautiful - we had the whole top of the mountain to ourselves and there were plenty of trails nearby. We'd love to come stay again!
**SURREAL** Loved this site!! Follow the Cumberland pass road, using GPS makes it easy. Top of the Mt. go right up the trail(you can drive). Blue ties are up to indicate sites. Friendly neighbors camping safe distance away. Had an evening walk After setting up camp. The side by sides go back to camp for evening And Then it’s so quiet and peaceful. The sunrise was everything I could have hoped for. On the way up to camp Being mindful of other vics on the road would be my advice. It was busy In daylight and road is narrow in some curves. I don’t know anywhere else you could have this type of experience -camping On a mountain, hikes in National Forest, plus historical sites.
Cumberland High Alpine campsite was absolutely not lacking in views. THIS. WAS. BEAUTIFUL.
Pros: view, remote, almost 0 mosquitos, cute towns on either side of the pass, Tony was a gracious host and pointed out a huge bull moose to us!!
Cons: high (took some time for our bodies and brains to adjust to 12,000 ft), could use a sign to help confirm we are in the right place, fairly rough road to get up to the top (check with Tony if you’re bringing a camper)
This is an ATV/ Jeeping haven. Loads of trials and lots of people enjoying being outside. Hiking and Mtn biking are a ways away and not quite as easily accessible.
Breath taking campsite
The area was gorgeous! Beautiful views and relatively quiet given the amount of OHV traffic in the area. Lots of old mining roads to explore. Tony was a gracious host, very friendly and helpful. He made sure we knew exactly where we were going and that we arrived there. He even told us about a bull moose hanging out in the area so our kids got see a wild moose!
Beautiful views and great star gazi
Beautiful views. It is at 12,000 feet, be prepared to be chilly at night. Great plave to view stars and planets. ots of cool ATV off road trails.
Yowza mtn views + 4x4
From Tin Cup, a beautiful + leisurely 4x4 recommended drive (Forester), ~35 min via dirt/rocky Natl forest road,. (Pro-tip: Unless you have legit high-clearance 4x4, take the obviously-easier-looking, but longer/windy path to the right and not the more direct route up the pass that GPS suggests : ) Rocky switchbacks, pass some abandoned mines then Yowza 360 mountain views + sunset at 12,000+ ft Cumberland Pass. Anthony's campsites just around the corner from the sign at the top were nicely distanced, with some tree coverage and fire pits. Passed lots of ATVs on the way up, and there was some traffic in the distance before sundown around the site, but people respected the 'no trespassing' signs on Anthony's hipcamp property and it was pure silence after sundown... Milky Way by 10:30pm.
