CAMPING ON BLM PUBLIC LANDS IN COLORADO

There are several options for staying overnight on public lands managed by BLM Colorado.  You can camp within a vehicle, trailer, tent, under the stars, enjoy a developed campground or any number of dispersed (undeveloped) sites.  Visitors can camp on a remote trail or boat to a dispersed site along the river.  

Kremmling Field Office Camping Rules and Regulations:

* Visitors can only camp in the same area for 14 days.

* Visitors cannot leave a camp unattended for over 48 hours.

* Visitors must keep camp free from litter or debris.

* Visitors must know local fire restrictions and NEVER leave an unattended campfire.


Developed Campgrounds

Developed campgrounds may include a variety of these facilities: a toilet, picnic tables, a fire ring, potable water, tent pads, and/or garbage cans.

Pumphouse Campground - This site requires a fee, which helps fund the maintenance of the site.

Radium Campground - This site requires a fee, which helps fund the maintenance of the site.

Dispersed (Undeveloped) Sites

Undeveloped sites are normally recognized by a hardened surface, with no vegetation, and where others have already camped. Please use pre-existing campfire rings or firepans and know local fire restrictions for that area. Please pack out all trash and properly dispose of human waste.
