Free BLM camping along I-70 for a convenient and scenic nights sleep.

I was driving from Denver to Telluride and wanted a camping spot along the way so I decided to make a random turn off of 70 and sure enough found some beautiful BLM land to camp on. The Deep Creek Campground is along a dirt road about 2 miles off of a paved road. There are 6 camping sites along the road that follows the creek. If you're thinking of staying here long term there are time limits: from April 1 to August 31 it is 7 days, and from September 1 to March 31, it is 14 days.

The sites come with a fire ring, plenty of flat ground, and a running river. Great spot to spend the evening!

Please pack in and pack out! Since it's BLM Land it's important to keep it clean for the next user.  

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
