Kenosha Pass Campground is a small, conveniently-located campground heralded by backpackers on the Colorado Trail and by those looking for a scenic, mountain family getaway. Across the road from the campground entrance is the Kenosha Pass Interpretive Area, with an accessible interpretive trail showcasing wetlands and remnants of the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad. Kenosha Pass, the campground’s namesake, weaves over the spine of the Front Range from Jefferson to Grant and provides stunning views of South Park.
At a 10,000 foot elevation, the region is commonly referred to as the High Country. Campsites are situated among lodgepole pine and aspen trees. Summer temperatures are generally mild and cool, but the high elevation may cause very chilly nights.
Excellent hiking, biking, and horseback riding are available on the lengthy Colorado Trail, a 471-mile trail that extends from Denver to Durango.
For a scenic drive, take in the views of the Kenosha Mountain Pass, then head to Guanella Pass for even more picture-perfect scenery.
Kenosha Pass includes vault toilets and drinking water from a hand pump. Each site has a campfire ring and picnic table. Parking aprons are dirt and gravel.
