Directions to Lost Lake Campground:

From Denver:

I-70 West to Glenwood Springs (Exit 116) ~ 150 mi.

Take Hwy 82 South towards Carbondale ~ 12 mi.

Turn right onto Hwy 131 towards Redstone

Stay on Hwy 131 (~50 mi.) over McClure Pass

Turn left onto Rd. 12 after passing Paonia Reservoir

Turn right onto FR 706 towards Lost Lake

Estimated time from Denver ~4.5 hours

 

Alternate Route:

Todd has offered this alternate route... I-70 to Hwy-91 at Copper Mtn, take 91 south over Fremont Pass and on to Leadville, pick up Hwy-24 S to Buena Vista, then take the road W out of BV over Cottonwood Pass (20 miles up, 14 miles down the other side), then down
Taylor Canyon to the Almont Triangle cut-off (around mile marker 5 or 6), which takes you 5 miles to Hwy-135, which you'll turn right on and head 14
miles North to Crested Butte. That's a lot quicker than going all the way down Hwy-24 to Hwy-50 at Poncha Springs, then over Monarch Pass to Gunnison, then north on Hwy-135 to Crested Butte.
Kebler Pass is only 5 or 6 miles from Crested Butte. The road is about 25 miles, and Lost Lake Slough turn-off is several miles beyond the pass.

Campground/Area Information:

Each individual is responsible for their own camping arrangements!

Lost Lake Campground has only 11 spaces, and its first come, first served. No reservations.

There are also primitive campsites in the area (its mostly National Forest), but we don't have much information on specific locations at this time.
