Quartz Campground lies west of the Sawatch Mountain Range in the southern part of the mineral belt that extends north to Leadville, CO. It is a popular area for four-wheel driving. Most of the roads, that are used for recreation today, were created by mine owners over 100 years ago. Quartz Campground lies on Cumberland Pass Road, which is improved dirt and usually passable by two-wheel drive vehicles. There are 10 campsites.
