Upper Colorado Red Dirt Creek Campsite

Red Dirt Creek Open Space now hosts an overnight campsite! Located on river right on the Colorado River near mile 53, this site can be accessed only by river. Users can find it on river right about 2/3mi below Twin Bridges (not to be confused with Two Bridges).

More info on the Eagle County Open Space Facebook Page.

Phil, tell me when you want to install fire rings and picnic tables and tie off posts for these spots. I'm ready to help float in supplies and assemble. Show our friends at the BLM what a river camp site looks like... This is very exciting. How is the bridge construction situation?

Most of the campsite is all set. I haven't decided whether or not to put a picnic table in. State Bridge construction is almost wrapped up. I believe they just need to pave it. Not sure which day the asphalt crew will be there, but I would expect big delays during paving. Being optimistic, I hope the bridge will be fully back open for next weekend.

Wasn't work planned to upgrade the Twin Bridges (hazard)? Has there been any progress? The old bridges are boat rippers.

Twin Bridges (road bridge) is being upgraded. Last week they began prepping. No known closures as of now.
