  • Reminder: Guanella Pass Camping Restrictions In Effect

    Concentrated impacts from visitors are causing safety concerns, resource damage and threatening the Town of Georgetown’s water supply. To reduce these impacts, parking, camping, campfires and all other uses are restricted between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. in undesignated areas within a quarter-mile of Guanella Pass Road, portions of Leavenworth Road and all of Silver Dollar Lake Road. Visitors may camp and have campfires in one of five developed campgrounds along the road corridor, including 70 developed campsites and 30 designated dispersed sites; park in designated parking areas at any time; hike the Mount Bierstadt Trail at any time; backpack out of the restricted area to camp; and use the area during non-restricted times for parking, picnicking, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting and viewing wildlife. Read the full Guanella Pass Dispersed Camping restrictions.
