    winter park

    Hey guys,
    i am trying to get a WP trip together on a tight budget. is there any free camping at WP? Snow shoe has a parking lot where you can camp for free and I was wondering if WP had anything similar?

    corona rd

    Corona rd is across the st from WP resort, and you can camp off it. Broken thumb trailhead has a parking area about 5 mi up on left, and is in natl forest. I've camped there before. There's a Safeway grocery in Frasier.

    bears are certainly around. I know that the campground near town had a few problem ones earlier in the summer, and I have seen them in town at night recently.

    just be smart about storing your food, toiletries, etc. (i.e. trunk of your vehicle), keep a clean camp, and you shouldn't have a problem.
