If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Campsite has beautiful views, is super quiet & is convenient location for getting to hiking & biking trails & town of Carbondale. We slept here in our camper van for 3 nights while attending the Carbondale Mountain Festival. Campsite was level, cut grass, accessed from paved road & gravel driveway.
Great location and super spot
This is a great camping spot! Right near Carbondale and down the road from Aspen. Lots of space, right by a small stream, and Robert, the host, is super welcoming. I’ll definitely come back when I’m in the area.
We loved staying here at this beautiful site. The creek is serene and lovely and the fairy lights at night make the campsite feel magical. We got to chat a bit with Robert, and he was kind and generous. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful get away spot
This is a beautiful and peaceful spot. I stayed at the peninsula site, and the creek meanders around you on three sides. There is a nice picnic table and Adirondack chairs at the site. There were deer that wandered through the meadow to eat and play every day. The outhouse is rustic but very nice and well supplied with TP, fresh wipes and hand sanitizer. I had some difficulty initially finding the property, so I recommend following Robert’s explicit instructions, and not your apple map. I will definitely stay here again, it is a short drive to civilization, but feels like you are really getting away from it all.
We arrived at sunset to a glorious, serene spot and beautiful views. The turnoff was easy to find thanks to Robert’s directions and we lucked out having the land to ourselves. Quaint little lights turn on at dusk, adding to the magical feel and winding through the campsites you will find the very definition of a meandering stream. A calm, zen feature to fall asleep to. In the evening, we watched bats dipping for bugs and listened to coyotes howl in the distance. We woke up to a deer gracefully galloping past our camper. The on-site compost toilets were the nicest and cleanest we’ve see, complete with tiny interior lights for nighttime business. This was a wonderful stop on our road trip.
