An easy-access spot with a killer view that’s only 25 min away from Great Sand Dunes National Park. At the foot of Blanca Peak (14,345′), there is one large clearing (where coordinates link to) that can comfortably fit 3-4 campers and several other spots to pull off the road as you continue up the mountain. It’s good for any size rig depending on how far up the mountain you want to venture. We didn’t trek too far because the road gets very bumpy and finding a level spot can be tricky but if you have 4×4 then it’s probably a pretty cool drive. There is a 16 mile hike up the mountain if you’re feeling adventurous but no services in the way of outhouses or garbage cans so take your trash with you. There is usable cell service and the town of Fort Garland has gas, food, etc if you need supplies. Beware of coyotes and other wildlife.
Max stay is 14 days.
