Dispersed Camping

You may camp within 300 feet of most Forest Service roads as long as you are on National Forest System lands. Under Colorado law, it is your responsibility to know if you are on private land. Choose your campsite based on impact; if you can tell that a site has been used before, camp there instead of creating a new site. Be sure to obtain current information on fire restrictions in the area and use existing fire rings. Make sure that after the fire, the area is cold to the touch before you leave! And please leave your campsite cleaner than you found it!
