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.

Impeccably-maintained site. Beautiful tranquil location. Great communication. Just what we needed on our way to the Maroon Bells.

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.

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.

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 are glad you enjoyed your deer visit. I love that they come so close when you just sit and watch.

Come back for fishing any time. The Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers are the BEST! We are glad your family was able to join you on this trip.

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.
