Awesome place to camp. There are few creeks and a spring. You can fish, swim enjoy. Lots of intimate and flat spaces to park. We met someone that lives there full time during summer. Not cell signal.

Awesome camp spot, have stayed a few times. The spaces do fill up toward sunset, but if you get there mid-day I've always founds a good place!

Gorgeous, right at the river. Easy pull off and plenty of space. we were by ourselves and parked our 25ft class C left before the bridge along the river. 1hr from Aspen, 35ft or longer not allowed on independence pass.

Completely free, tons of space & camping spots. Perfect for big groups too. No facilities, so please BURY your body waste & pack out your trash. 360° Mountain views with a beautiful river, trees for shade, & designated campfire spots. About an hour outside of Aspen.

No spot here is level but being next to the river is incredible. Definitely worth a stop.

Stunningly beautiful place to camp. The entries to a gravel road are between mile markers 68 and 69 on the highway to Independence Pass. Several places to camp along the river. If you have a high clearance set up, cross the bridge near the gaging station to find a few sites with scenic mountain views near the Graham Gulch trailhead. Don't worry about the noise from traffic, the river will provide white noise.

Great place to stay!! Dirt road that leads down to several spots... some right by the river. Didn't hear noise from the road because the nice white noise from the river. Stayed 1 night. Seems any type of vehicle can access these spots.
