Camp at Lost Lake Slough

Lost Lake Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Jason Hatfield

A beautiful lake high in the aspen-covered West Elk Mountains of Crested Butte.

Lost Lake Slough offers camping, hiking, photography, kayaking, and more in a remote and beautiful part of Colorado. At an elevation of over 9,600 ft., the lake typically opens in mid-June after the snow is melted, and closes in October after the first significant snowfall. The campground is on the smaller side with only 18 sites, and can fill quickly on the weeks; fees are $18/night, no reservations. Nearby dispersed camping options are also available on the road in.

The surrounding West Elk Mountains are home to one of the largest aspen stands in the world, and in the fall the whole area glows with golden colored leaves. The Lake is a prime sunrise photography spot in the fall but a variable water level creates different conditions each year.

Breathtaking place to camp!

By far one of the best places I have ever camped. I camped here during the summer so the water was absolutely beautiful an refreshing to swim in plus the campground host is very nice.

Great camping location

I agree this is prime location for staying the night and very close to Kebler Pass. The lake is picturesque and a great place as well for viewing wildlife.

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.
