Camping at Lost Park Campground

- Great basecamp for backpacking trip into Lost Creek Wilderness
- Easy access
This campground is a great spot to crash at before heading out on a backpacking trip through the Lost Creek Wilderness but serves as an amazing campground itself. The area immediately surrounding the campground is beautiful. There are 12 campsites that can accomodate two vehicles per site and each has a picnic table. The grounds have shared vault toilets.
The Lost Creek wilderness is one of the gems of the Front Range. Located from Highway 285 to the north (and where most people access the area) to highway 24 in the south. The Lost Creek wilderness in not nearly as visited as many other areas in the front range that boast higher mountains but do not let that fool you, the Lost Creek wilderness has a unique charm and beauty that can become addicting. Few summit baggers in Colorado would leave the summits of Bison Peak or McCurdy off their highlight list. There are several designated camping areas in the area but be aware, this is a wilderness area and additional regulations apply.
