Description

Several flat sites with fire pits along Piney River Rd. This location is the one I stayed at, about half a mile before the Upper Piney Lake trailhead. This areas has lots of privacy, access to several hiking trails, river access, and beautiful scenery. Amazing wildflowers in the spring and early summer. Road is a little bumpy/washboarded but easily doable with any vehicle. Some mud after the rain.

It can get crowded so it's a good idea to get here early.

Right along Piney Lake Road next to the Piney Lake Ranch. Site 6 has two camping sites with fire rings. Great views of the mountains and you can walk to the lake. It’s about a 35 min drive from the hardball road in Vail but worth it. A bit of daytime traffic since this is an active resort area.

Report Check-In

Don’t waist your time. Way to far 45 minutes and very limited number of dispersed slots available. We arrived there and were asked to leave if we wanted to sleep because a group of people were clos to us and said they would be partying all night. We left and found anoitecer space on the road. Nothing great.

Didn’t stay at this exact location, but we found a pull off much closer to Vail. Still about a half hour into the dirt road. Very rocky & wash boarded.. we won’t be back again in the van because everything rattled more than we liked. Beautiful spot though!
