CAMPGROUNDS - CRESTED BUTTE AREA AND NEARBY
Comprehensive map of campgrounds around the area:
Not many camping locations allow reservations. Most all camping is first-come-first-serve. One exception is the Lake Irwin Campground. This allows for reservations, is great for kids, and isn't too far from Mt. Crested Butte. It books fast so reserve early if you are interested in camping here.
If you arrive and are having trouble, you can usually find first-come-first-serve sites available between Almont and the Taylor Reservoir. The closer you get to Crested Butte, the harder it can be to find a spot to camp, so please plan accordingly.
