Hi, we are arriving in Crested Butte the afternoon of Friday June 22 and have never been to this part of Colorado before. I've had a look online and found some good info about what campsites there are but I have a few questions that I am hoping those with local experience can help me with. FYI - we are more dispersed or forest service style campers, we don't need RV facilities.
Do the first come first served campsites usually fill up on a Friday and if so, by what time? If they are likely to fill up, any particular campgrounds that are less likely or will fill later in the day?
Best area for dispersed camping if we do that rather than staying in developed campgrounds? I do see that the Gothic area is closed to dispersed camping at that time of the year.
Any particular favorite camping areas? We will mountain biking and hiking.
Thanks in anticipation
