One of the best campsites in the US up to now on a side road up a hill from Kebler Pass Road in Gunnison National Forest. The unobstructed view over the aspen and oak fall color to Beckwith and Marcellina Mountains is fabulous.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
*I did not go here yet but wanted to share some updated information I found on the COtrip.org website*
Looks like they may have a temporary bridge up now on the sinkhole as of June 19th, with oversize/overweight limits of 85,000 GVWR and 11FT width limit. "Between County Road S35 and Bear Road (Somerset) from Mile Point 14 to Mile Point 18." (just west of Somerset).
You can check the current conditions by checking the map or directions on COtrip.org and checking the box for "oversize/overweight restrictions" and "construction".Report Check-In
Highway 133 is closed around Bowie due to the road being washed out, so you can’t get here from that wayReport Check-In
One of the most beautiful sites I've seen. Just past where Google maps takes you, we found a spot in a field of wild flowers and wild chives. Amazing mountain views in nearly every direction and room for a few tents. We saw at least 4 other sites on the way up the road with room for a couple of tents and multiple fire rings. Lots of wildlife (deer, birds, elk, etc.) and beautiful aspen views. This time of year though, the site was very muddy and our car almost got stuck pulling into the site. Be sure to download maps as you won't have service from Carbondale until you hit this site (with AT&T and T-Mobile)
Unexpected storms also made the dirt road out a challenge. Despite a digital sign on the 133 saying the the pass was open, we hit another sign saying it was closed just about a mile out from the site coming from the Paonia side. We made it to the site but weren't able to go over into Crested Butte due to impassable mud a locked gate. We found out later the entire road was washed away, and repairs are TBD. 133 South to Paonia was also shut to massive sinkhole (??). Google maps and a quick internet search didn't catch any of the closures so be sure to check local sites or call the station to hear about conditions.
Beautiful views of the surrounding area.
The road in is now gravel and manageable by most rigs, but the camping is limited.
Theres a big lot at the start, currently occupied by a village of friendly hunters. Then maybe 4 more firepits/sites down road. The offshoots are fairly rutted, muddy and could get messy after rain.
No need to go past the pond on the main "road", no sites after it and a tight turn around at a gate.
Worth checking to see if any of the sites are open and just to see the views but not many options here overall.
Bit of off the cuff hiking/horse riding here. Mostly small hunter trails.
Gorgeous place but do not attempt in rain!! Our van got stuck in mud with no service, closest store is 10 miles away. There aren’t very many spots easily accessible.Report Check-In
By far the best camp site in CO that I have come across. East access with my 2wd Sprinter. Absolute must if you are looking for a spot on KeblerReport Check-In
