Whether you are visiting friends and family in Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale, or Glenwood Springs,  let Coulter Creek be your peaceful escape.  Coulter Creek meanders through the mountainous property creating a green grassy valley. The 100 acres 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 all the towns off of highway 82.  Excellent paved roads for biking.  The driveway to the creek and meadow has easy access for vans, SUVs, trucks, and AWD crossovers.

The property is 5 miles north of HWY 82 on Catherine Store Rd.  The area is called Missouri Heights.  It is less than a 30-min drive to Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, or Basalt.  Aspen is 45-min away.  You have access to Glenwood Springs and Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Mountain Fairs and Markets, 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.  World-Class fishing on the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan Rivers, biking the Rio Grande Trail (from Glenwood Springs to Aspen), climbing at the Monkey House in Carbondale, rafting, or kayaking on the rivers.  In the winter you have quick access to cross country ski trails all over the valley and the amazing ski mountains of Aspen, Snowmass, Highlands, Buttermilk, and Sunlight!

This site can accommodate van camping, a small RV, or a travel trailer (up to 22').  You will pull through the meadow to a site by the willows along the creek. There is a picnic bench at each site along the creek and some Adirondack chairs.

Robert’s place was an amazing retreat to relax and take in the gorgeous views. The creek brought much peace while sleeping and the little extra special attention to detail did not go unnoticed ( solar lights, chairs, picnic table, outhouse essentials). Would definitely stay again!!

We camped on a weekday and luckily had the entire place to ourselves so I'm not sure what it would've been like with other campers. When we were there the sites were pretty close to each other, there wasn't too much shade so I recommend bringing something for shade however It looked like Robert had planted some young trees so probably the following season the sites should be nice and shady from the trees. Everything was clean including the outhouses which were also stocked with some basic necessities. The creek was a great place to cool off, the grass was crunchy but soft enough for walking barefoot and laying down in. The camp is right off the road so depending on which site you choose you may see/hear cars pass but it wasn't too bad since the creek and the birds provide a lot ambient noise. I would recommend this hipcamp, my dog loved her time here!

We found a perfect place to park our little camper van for a couple nights! The directions were easy to follow and Robert and his wife checked up on us to make sure all was good. They gave us great advice for hiking and local spots in Carbondale for coffee & food. We enjoyed exploring so much that we stayed another night! The campsite itself was peaceful amidst beautiful scenery, deer, and the sounds of birds and a babbling creek. And like others said, the outhouse was clean and stocked with toilet paper and sanitizer :)

Gorgeous campsite! The stream winding thru was so idyllic and the surrounding area is so pretty. Multiple outhouses to use and the solar lights were a nice touch. Would love to come stay again!

This is truly a hidden gem tucked in private little valley. Close enough to Aspen to drive up and enjoy the glitz or back down Valley to Glenwood for their Hot Springs, supplies are only a couple of miles away at Catherine's store. Sleeping along a babbling brook, fairy lights in the trees at night, owners that took a real interest in us enjoying our stay and we have to say how fun it was to wake to a herd of deer drinking from Coulter Creek. We will be back next trip through!
