A small pullout just before the Golden Horn campground. Several good spots for tents or you can just camp in your vehicle in the pullout. It is right alongside the stream looking up the valley at the big mountains. No cell phone service but Starlink worked great.Report Check-In

Amazing campsites along the river on 585. Several paid campsites as well. You can use the bathroom at the last campground across from the Ice Lakes Trailhead. They also have water. Hike the Ice Lakes and Island Lake Trail while you’re there. Most amazing hike!Report Check-In
