About Arapaho National Forest
Campgrounds in Arapaho
Drop some Arapaho knowledge on us.
This campground was great mostly because of its location. I love the little town Idaho Springs about 20 minutes away (if you go there, get Beau Jo's pizza--it will change your life). The drive up to the campground was gorgeous (Guanella Pass). We stayed there early July and were freezing still, so dress warm! The bathrooms there are more like porter potties, so I recommend just going behind a tree to avoid the stench! Would love to stay here again during my trips to the colorful Colorado!
History of Arapaho National Forest
The forest is located in the Rocky Mountains, straddling the continental divide in the Front Range west of Denver. It was established on July 1, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named for the Arapaho tribe of Native Americans which previously inhabited the Colorado Eastern Plains.
