Leaving tomorow after work. Prefer free and away from others. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks. There's a mtb race going on this weekend so I'm sure it'll be busy.:thumb:

is where we camp when we head up there. close to MTB trails and free. It's also near the river.

Just head up Vasquez Rd. untill about the first place you can cross the creek to the left. It's a little ways up. Take a left where the road goes over a bridge then after the bridge you turn back to the left towards the creek. There is one creek crossing you can do in the truck right before the bridge that has campsites near it too. No need to drive through the creek though, just drive a few yards up the road to the bridge and cross using it. last year we camped there during the races and it was empty.

All it is is a spot up the road from winter park, in the woods.. nothing special, but it is alone and nice.

That's where we've always camped. There's tons of spots up Vasquez.
