Dispersed camping at the beautiful Jones Pass. Do you not enjoying having camping neighbors right next to you? Do you enjoy the solitude of the wilderness? Check out these great campsites in a breathtaking area.

To locate these campsites all you have to do is type in Jones Pass Road into google maps or your iPhone and it will take you straight there. There are road signs once you get off I-70 that will help you the rest of the way that say Jones Pass. Once you hit the dirt road and pass the Jones Pass Trailhead you will begin to see camping sites on the sides of the road. The further up you go the more dispersed and spread out the campsites get. There are a lot in open areas with great fews but may be super windy depending on when you go up there. If you have a decent 4x4 vehicle the road is a breeze. Drive to the top to see the view that is in the picture of mountains and snow. We had no problems while camping here besides random strong gusts of wind at night.

As beautiful as they come

Just drove up for a quick overnight trip. Beautiful spot, with camping spots along the creek, which are getting harder to find. Be aware that as of July, 2017, the road is among the worst I've encountered in my travels. Maybe 5 mph average. Didn't make it near the top. The area around the big fence by the meadow seemed about optimum to me and a few other campers. Would have liked to explore further.

Jones Pass Is Epic

Such an epic spot! Beautiful area, right along a stream - only complaint is that it got COLD at night, but that could be lack of preparation on our part. Totally worth it and I still can't get over the fact that this is an hour from Denver. Would love to keep this spot secret, but it is just perfect. GO.
