Winter Camp Near Coulson Gulch

4.0

Added by Ryan Mckinney

This area near Coulson Gulch is a great place to get away for the weekend and offers plenty of area to get out and snowshoe.

County Road 47 is between Lyons and Estes Park. It's an easy drive from Denver and is a great place to get away for the weekend. I have camped here in the summer, fall, and winter. I have to say that snow camping was my favorite. I didn't see anyone the whole weekend and had the entire area to explore on my snowshoes. I chose to sleep in a hammock (best night of sleep you will ever have) and my friend Adam dug out a spot for himself in the snow (I thought he was crazy). Whenever I camp here I always make a pit stop at Oskar Blues in Lyons on my way home. To get to this location you will need a high clearance 4x4 vehicle.

A Great Place To Getaway For A Night Or Two!

I like to have a few spots to visit where I know there aren't going to be crowds. This is a good one, especially in winter.
