These sites are a short hike in from the driveway. There are several great locations to set up camp and sleep along the creek. Come explore the changing colors of Fall in the Roaring Fork Valley.  Whether you are hiking Maroon Bells, Capitol Creek, Mushroom Rock, Aspen Mtn, Maroon Bells, Snowmass, or Crystal Mills set up camp in a quiet meadow next to Coulter Creek. The mountainous property with a green grassy valley is in eastern Garfield county in Missouri Heights.  The hills are peppered with sage, gamble oak, and juniper. Sleep along the creek with the sounds of rippling water. Spend the day hiking through the hill looking for arrowheads, elk sheds, and wildflowers. Views of Mt. Sopris, Basalt Mountain, Sunlight, Snowmass, and Cottonwood pass from the several mesas. Easy access to excellent paved roads for biking.

You can tent camp along Coulter Creek in the pasture or in the valley.  These sites are for tents only and all vehicles must be parked along the gated driveway next to the meadow.  There is an outhouse available.  The areas next to the creek are very grassy with a few trees.  There is shade in the valley between the hills as you walk up the creek.  Picnic tables and Adirondack chairs are available along the creek. 

Missouri Heights is less than a 30-min drive to Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, or Basalt.  You have access to Glenwood and Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Mountain Fairs and Markets (Carbondale, Basalt, and Aspen), Glenwood Caverns and Adventure Park, Snowmass, Sun Light, Crown Mountain & Mushroom Rock bike trails, Hanging Lake, Maroon Bells, Mt. Sopris, and hiking all over the valley.  We have World-Class fishing on the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan Rivers, biking the Rio Grande Trail (from Glenwood to Aspen), climbing at the Monkey House in Carbondale, rafting or kayaking on the rivers.

We had the most wonderful time! The creek was lovely to listen to before bedtime. The pathway alongside the creek had solar lights making it so you could find your way to the bathroom and not walk into the creek. The chairs and table were so nice to have as well! We can’t wait to come back and visit again. Oh and the deer were in camp- it was so so neat to see! Oh and the views- just beautiful stars and sunsets. Can’t say enough good things!!

Probably the best place I’ve ever camped. We were there for tent camping super last minute. No one else was there so we had the whole spot open for ourselves. Bathrooms were super clean. To say the least, the land is insanely beautiful and incredibly magical. Super thankful for Robert contacting me back so quickly and promptly having the place open for us! 11/10 would highly recommend this oasis.

We hope you can come on back and explore our valley a bit longer next time! There is so much to do and see in each of our towns throughout the summer.

We loved tent camping on Robert’s spot. The sounds of the stream were a perfect soundtrack for sleep. We enjoyed exploring the hills around the area, spotting deer in the evening, and taking our first stream bath. Robert’s wife offered many suggestions for food and activities that were perfect. We can’t wait to return!

Tent Camp on Coulter CreekLove the little touches, like lights on the trees! Beautiful wildflowers! Serene evenings at camp, with the sound of the stream outside the tent.

The pictures dont do this place justice. It was so peaceful camping by the creek in an open meadow. It had 2 nice adirondack chairs, picnic table, and a clean compost toilet.
