Anybody know what the camping is like around the Canyonlnad of S. E. Colo. Is there camping near or at the Canyons? With the Weather so good this week, i was thinking of going down there for a couple days. I know there is some BLM lands in the area, but hard to know if you are on private or bLM in many cases. So what about camp spots at the canyons?

I have seen that. Nice site. As I rememeber, last time i was down there, the places that I thought should be camping sites, had signs that said no camping. Or no overnight parking etc. I don't know hw recent it was updated. I had thought most of it was BLM, but the author indicates it is Forest service. I can check with them.

I roamed around that area for several days and had a great time.

Just talked to the Forest service office in Springfeild,Co,. There is primative dispersed camping in most of Comanche national Grasslands. Dispersed camping in Picture Canyon. The east end of Carrizo canyon has a picknic/campground, but most of the canyon is either on or surounded by private property. I have hunted in there with permission of a land owner. Picketwire has no camping. Vogel has a picknic/camp ground. There is no potable water anywhere. There are some springs if you have a water filter, but many are dry much of the year. It's big country, so takes a while to get anywhere. Suppose to be in the 60's the rest of the week I don't go to work until saturday morning Anyone want to do some exploring

Sounds like you've gotit figured out,Oldman. Wish I could join. . . I love it down there.
I've hunted those same properties likely (south of Carrizo CG area).
There are plenty of camping areas (established and otherwise), and many roads for exploring.

If you haven't been thru the typical tourist sites (i.e.,, Picture Canyon) they are well worht a visit. I've camped at the PC picnic sites in my van, and have climbed most everyhting climbable (rock) in the area. So many awesome archaeologicaL sites and findings. Somuch to do and so few people.
