It goes without saying, Carbondale has some great camping.
Carbondale offers many types of camping, from backcountry to dedicated sites to family-friendly campgrounds.
Avalanche Creek has a variety of activities, from camping and hiking to Nordic skiing. Situated in a picturesque part of the Roaring Fork Valley, between Carbondale and Redstone, Avalanche Creek invites year-round recreation.
A little farther up Highway 133 is Bogan Flats, a great family campsite on the Crystal River. Bogan Flats has clean bathrooms, picnic tables, and grills for that rainbow trout.
Another great camping destination is located right outside of town in local-favorite area Thompson Creek. Take Main Street west through town until you are on Thompson Creek Road. Follow the road for several miles until you reach an endless assortment of campsites. Don't forget your fly rod for those fighting "brookies."
