Camp at Chinns Lake

Lower Chinns Lake - Search Nearby - Added by Lucas Alexander

This is a gorgeous area to spend the day hanging out or to come up and camp. You will need a good off-road vehicle to make the climb though, very bumpy and there are a few steep inclines. 

Take the road as if you are going to St. Mary's Glacier, but you will take a left off the road (next to a very nice house) before the road makes a sharp right turn to go up hill. The road is a smooth dirt road for about a mile, but gets very rocky after that and you will need a good off road vehicle to drive further. I drove a 91 jeep cherokee with 4x4. I saw some trucks drive by,

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
