The vibe at Kite Lake Campground
Drop some Kite Lake Campground knowledge on us.
The road to kite lake is long and rough. I made it in a compact car, but it was tricky. The worst part is right before the campground. Once you're there, its beautiful, but cold, so be prepared! Its name is Kite Lake because it looks like a kite on a string from way above. You can bag three 14ers from this site; Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Democrat, and Mt. Cameron. Mount Bross is also a 14er, but it is currently on private property, so you are asked to please respect those rules. The powers that be are currently trying to gain access to the mountain and having people trespass isn't making it any easier.
Kite Lake is the perfect Decalibron base camp. It is a no frills camping area, but the fact that you can wakeup at the trailhead for your alpine start makes it worthwhile. The pit toilets are the only luxury. There is a small fee (self-serve) for parking a vehicle and staying overnight. Keep in mind that the weather changes rapidly at that elevation and that you will want a tent that can withstand the strong wind gusts.
