Come camp by ghost towns and old wagon trails at Guanella Pass Campground and get in touch with your inner pioneer. When not re-enacting the wagon days, you might want to enjoy the trout fishing at nearby lakes, hike some burly trails, or collect wood from the spruce forest for your campfire. Oh wait, the pioneers did that too!

We are thinking of camping here in one of the non-reservable sites this weekend. Does this campground usually fill up quickly? and....How far do you have to drive on a gravel road to get up here? We are in a small car.

My favorite time to go up here is in the fall! Incredible colors when the aspens are changing even if you just go for a drive! The sawtooth traverse is also a great way to bag two of Colorado's 14ers in one day!

Love, love, love this area any season! The campground had been closed due to bad weather but was briefly reopened for us brave few still seeking refuge amidst the beauty of a a National Forest. I come here a lot, and each time I find something new to inspire me. Usually just stay in the free areas, but this once stayed in the campground which would have been lovely had it been more in-season.

The best time to go is mid-summer when all the wild flowers are still in bloom. There are still a few snow fields in the area which helps keep you cool.
