Collegiate Peaks Campground

Campground in Buena Vista

Aptly named, this is a good base from which to summit the nearby peaks, including Yale and Turner. You can also get on the Colorado and the Ptarmigan Lake Trails, or simply fish for trout in Middle Cottonwood Creek. The campground is located 11 miles due west of Buena Vista at an altitude of 9800ft. Reserve ahead.
