The best camping near Vail, Colorado.

With 300 days of annual sunshine, there's no excuse not to explore Vail's millions of acres of pristine forest.


Looking down towards Holy Cross City and one beautiful sunset! Views for miles.
Hiking in on the jeep road to get to the cabin.
You can hike up behind the cabin (and really everywhere) quite a ways to gain even better views.
View of the cabin as you approach it.

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.

Vail Village uses 30,500 decatherms of natural gas annually to heat the quaint cobblestone streets and keep them free of snow and ice.
One of the amazing tent sites overlooking a forested canyon, mountains, and the Platte River.
Tent view at one of the river tent sites. Rushing water is such a peaceful sound to sleep to.
Incredible views from the cliffs (right next to one of the tent spots)
Go for a dip in the super clear waters of the Platte River or maybe just get your toes wet. :)

Annie: One of the most amazing places. And the hosts are putting out a peaceful vibe
Vail's comfy summer temps hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit once every two or three years. Approximately 15 days each summer reach 80 degrees or higher.
The front of the beautifully designed mountain hut.
Weston Pass is situated a short distance above the hut and offers compelling views west or east.
Weston Pass is situated a short distance above the hut and offers compelling views west or east.
The hut is built into the side of the mountain meaning it's easier to stay warm on a cold winter night.
