Gothic Campground - Gunnison RD


Area Status: Closed

The terrain surrounding Gothic Campground is as rugged as it is beautiful. The mountain biking, hiking, motorcycle riding and four-wheel driving can't be beat. This older rustic site lies in a stretch of the Gunnison National Forest that is sandwiched between the Maroon Bells-Snowmass and the Raggeds Wilderness Areas. The area seldom gets crowded so it's worth the extra effort and time it takes to reach the region. The landscape is spruce/fir trees.
