County Road 187 takes you South of Highway 285 in to San Isabel National Forest.  It was from there that we found County Road 185 and some gorgeous dispersed camping sites.  The highlight of the day’s drive was an incredible aspen grove that would make for breathtaking camping in the fall.

We set up camp off County Road 185D where our camp was protected by trees on three sides but also offered awesome Western exposure for maximum sunlight as well as views of the Collegiete peaks.  Perfect campsite features in my opinion.
