Latest Check-Ins

Mosquitos were relentless all night. Also spotted beavers, deer, and plenty of horses across the street. There are more campsites at Horse Ranch Park and the Cliff Creek Trailhead just northwest of the GPS marker. Horse Ranch has a pit toilet. We stayed at the TH with a great view of endless aspens, but only a few sites to be found. Not too busy for a holiday.

Report Check-In

Beautiful campsite with nice views but I would never camp here again. The mosquitoes ate us alive and we were in a slide-in camper on a Ford truck. We’ve been boondocking for seven weeks and never seen mosquitoes anywhere close to this bad. Also, Kebler Pass Road is a thoroughfare and it is not as remote as it would seem. There’s a lot of traffic on the road.

This was an awesome place. Dirt road but easy to get here in a class c. Wonderful views. Worth the trip down the dirt road.

Really nice spot, great views and an easy trail down to the river. We saw black bears in mid July so we chained our dog up. Before that we were able to see/hear elk, beaver and deer also. Amazing!

Great campsite along Kebler Pass Road at Horse Ranch Park with a gorgeous view to Beckwith Mountain with great fall color.

Amazing place to spend Labor Day weekend. No trash perfect!

Found a nice off-road trail FR209 that has some wonderful campsites. The road is a bit rutted so you might need some higher clearance but there was a Prius up at one of the sites
