Campground Review: Washington Gulch Boondocking, Crested Butte, Colorado

Why we chose here: Crested Butte was definitely one of the mountains towns we wanted to visit. We looked at reviews onCampendium and found that many of our friends had recommended this beautiful spot. 

Location: This is a stunning setting.  Extremely beautiful scenery, close to great hiking and access into the area is not too challenging.  The town of Crested Butte is less than 15 minutes away. It's a well known boondocking spot so don't expect to be alone.  We were with several other rigs, some of them were our friends. 

Sites: There are a variety of spots here, depending on your rig will depend which ones you can access. We stayed up on the plateau area which is very grassy and has great views. 

Facilities: Nothing - you are out in nature

Groceries: There is a store in Crested Butte which is not great, but passable. There is also a small organic grocery store. Generally I would recommend you bring in food with you. 

Reservations: No

Cell coverage / WiFi: Yes good coverage from Verizon, intermittent AT&T and barely there T-Mobile

Price paid: $0

Date of visit: August 2016
