We don’t know any good open camping spots near Estes Park, but Roosevelt National Forest encompasses much of the map area northeast of there, so we go in search of a spot. Following Devil’s Gulch Road to Glen Haven we find nothing. Nor is there much prospect between Glen Haven and Drake. We’re planning to climb at The Monastery, so we make the drive up FR 128 and find glorious primitive camping right at the trailhead! The views of Long’s Peak and the plains below are just amazing. Homeowners in the area will probably manage to eliminate these camping spots eventually, but we’re very thankful for them today.
