This is a Secluded campsite to enjoy the weekend and the area is surrounded by aspen trees, the perfect fall campsite. You even Wake up to the sound of grazing sheep!
If you are looking to get away from the crowds then this is the site for you. Located in the Routt National Forest, this spot offers everything from a seasonal lake (I went out of season) to free range sheep. Because of all the aspen trees, this place will be glowing with color in the fall. You will need a high profile vehicle to make it back there easily (I'm sure a Subaru could make it with some creative driving). This is a dispersed campsite (no facilities) so make sure you plan accordingly, and always pack out.
