Camp at East Castle Rock Gulch

Originally added by Korey Taylor

Secluded BLM camping in East Castle Rock Gulch.

This is an awesome camp spot for individuals who do not have a 4x4 or AWD and want a secluded getaway! It does require to drive about 3 miles along a dirt road before arriving at the dead end of 188A, but can be easily cleared. From what I could see on the drive in there were only 4 camp spots designated by fire pits, 1 off of 188A, 2 at the dead end of 188A, and one off of 188. These camp spots are primitive, meaning no services!! Bring lots of water and don't forget to pack in and pack out!

At the end of 188A there is a large rock face to the right. You will find a small trail that leads up the backside of it to the top and gives you a pretty unforgettable view.

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.
