For a true Colorado experience, pitch a tent under the stars and sleep soundly in the crisp night air. Find a scenic campground near Turquoise Lake and Twin Lakes, or in Leadville’s RV park. Pitch a tent in the forest; see where dispersed camping is allowed.
Backcountry huts and yurts near Leadville make camping fun and comfortable year ’round. So grab some friends, trek to a cozy base camp, and explore the wilderness. See our camping guide for more info on camping and fun things to do in the area.
Please check for current fire bans. Leadville, Twin Lakes, and surrounding areas are under Stage 1 fire restrictions starting May 12, 2022.
Please always be careful with campfires. Help us protect our forests and homes!
