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, which can be a problem if you are planning to arrive on a Friday in July. 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. If you are coming over Cottonwood Pass from the east, that might be a great option for you. The closer you get to Crested Butte, the harder it can be to find a spot to camp, so please plan accordingly.
