    Places to camp near keystone

    I'm doing the Blue River Century on the 20th, and looking for a good place to camp somewhere near Keystone. Any hot springs in the area? Any recommendations for spots or areas? Any must hit mountain bike trails that might be dry by then in the area to warrant more bikes on the roof? Thanks for any info!

    No Hot Springs. As already mentioned, lot's of camping off Montezuma road. Also camping up the forks of the Swan up Tiger road closer to Breckenridge.

    Camping off of Keystone Gulch Rd is decent. A couple of trails to hit while back there also. Kinda busy though, the further you drive up the road the less crowded.

    Since when?

    You can camp in Last Chance, unless they changed it for this last season. I camped there a couple of years ago. Last Chance is national forest property.

    I would camp on the Gulch rd, just cause it's a lot closer to keystone and real easy to get to from single track trails. YOu can get to a huge network of trails from that rd.

    There are many places to camp in summit county, just drive around and look.

    Tons of camping around Dillon reservoir, and the some of the best spots I know of are up the aforementioned Montezuma road (great rock climbing up there too).

    Does anyone know about this? I was fairly certain that you could camp in the last chance lot but now I'm worried..

    Any easy top-roping up there (5.0-5.8) for my kids?
