Vail might be home to a world-class ski resort, but this little city also boasts world-class fly-fishing, world-class hiking and world-class nature-loving. The ski trails morph into mountain bike trails during the summer, and the valley’s Eagle River provides exhilarating rafting opportunities. The plentiful options for cabins and camping near Vail accommodate every budget. Just six miles east of Vail at 8,700 feet, White River National Forest offers a multitude of primitive sites to choose from, including campsites right along the river, and unbeatable access to hiking and boating. The 2.3-million-acre, wildlife-packed White River National Forest features eight wilderness areas, 10 peaks exceeding 14,000 feet and numerous developed camping facilities. The eastern portion of the Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District offers RV and campground camping at Camp Hale Memorial, Gold Park, Halfmoon and Hornsilver Campgrounds. The Forest Service offers a few historic cabin rentals, and you’ll find cabins at the Trappers Lake Lodge in the Flat Tops Wilderness area with five Forest Service campgrounds nearby. Private options include the spacious and well appointed Pando Cabins at historic Camp Hale 15 miles from Vail and Piney River Ranch’s large selection of lakefront cabins, yurts and glamping tents.
