Hansons Mill dispersed camping

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Elevation: 10,800' This small, isolated dispersed (HORSE FRIENDLY) campground is located 16.8 miles east of Creede on Forest Road 600. Campers will find this to be a good vantage point for viewing vistas of distant mountains. There are 3 camping units at this site with picnic tables and fire rings. There is a vault-type toilet, but no water or refuse receptacles. A small stream can provide emergency drinking water only if it is treated or boiled. Trails and 4 WD roads are nearby, as well as fishing in East Bellows Creek. There is lots of room here to accommodate large groups (family reunions, etc.).  This is a very Horse Friendly campground with plenty of nearby grazing and room for trucks/trailers.   The 4x4 road takes off here for the Wheeler Geological Area attraction.  East Bellows trail #790 goes into the Wilderness Area from here to Wheeler Geologic Area and is a foot or horse trail only, no motorized vehicles or mountain bikes allowed.  Call 719-658-2556 for "real time" conditions.  14 DAY CAMPING LIMIT.
