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.

Not private but beautiful
Beautiful spot - we just wish the info was a little clear that it was more a campground type set up. There were several sites nearby and about 15-20 other people around so it got a little noisy. However, it was nearby great hikes had well-maintained outhouses, and helpful guide lights, and the host was very nice.
Yes yes yes!
Beautiful! Idyllic! Peaceful! Thank you, Robert, and fam for opening up your space to visitors and allowing others to enjoy such goodness with sights of Sopris. Amazing launch pad for some rad bike rides. Thank you!
We loved the stay at Robert’s Red camp at Coulter Creek. We camped 3 nights. This is a beautiful land and a peaceful place. Lots of space. We took our shower tent too. No portable water as mentioned in the description. Need to take your own. Clean outhouses. Robert is a nice person. Highly recommended. We will come back for sure.
Wide open spaces…
Great place, off the beaten path. Only request…looked like the grass hadn’t been cut in a while. We are all for natural beauty of a location but a little patch for the tents and trimmed path to the out house would have been great. It had rained pretty hard the day we arrived and walking with the wet, long blades of grass made for an damp setup. Other then that, a really lovely location. We’ll definitely be back!
Great site, very well maintained. We were a group of guys that hiked the next day but would be good for families too. Outhouses were actually nicely done and clean. Nice little stream to set up next to. Only minor drawback would be proximity of the road. You could hear cars but the frequency was low.
Very pretty little spot in a valley along a creek. Feels very secluded while not being far from the road. The outhouse was very clean and Robert was very helpful. Walk to the top of the hill next to the campsite for a great views and the surrounding mountains and hillsides!
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!!
