hey im going to glenwood springs this week for my ACA and i have no money for hotels cause im one of those poor college students, and was wondering if someone could direct me to a place that is free for camping, that would be great!
you know sometimes i wish i would have chosen something like baseball but, i didn't and i'm a kayaker so this is what i do." -Nick Turner (Wehyakin) www.josfotos.com
there are a few rest areas within strikin distance of the shoshone, thats what i always use. trying to come up with any actual camping (like in the forest) tends to take me a long ways from anywhere.. there seems to be a weird combination of private property and roadless terrain in the area
on second thought, ther seemed to be some BLM south on south canyon exit,
if you go back upstream to Dotsero then follow the Colorado river road a few miles to Coffee Pot Creek road there is free camping along the creek just a mile or so from the Colorado river. It's probably only a 20 minute drive from Shoshone.
There's camping at BLM sites along the river above Dotsero, about 5 miles N. of I-70. Lyons Gulch is the site.
