Natives and newcomers can agree on one thing: Colorado is a superlative state. It has more Fourteeners than any other state, more microbreweries per capita than any other state, the highest suspension bridge in the world, the world’s largest natural hot springs pool, the tallest sand dunes in the United States, and the largest city park system in the country. If you are looking for the perfect place to camp in Colorado, your trip starts with Moon Colorado Camping. It’s the ideal resource for finding campsites—from secluded alpine hike-in spots to convenient roadside stopovers—throughout the entire state.

first camping trip was in 1973 at the age of 4 months, in a yellow VW. His parents took him car-camping from West Virginia to northern Maine to Niagara Falls. He never stopped camping for fun, and along the way, found various ways to do it professionally, working for Outward Bound, The U.S. Forest Service, Peace Corps Nicaragua (that was kind of like camping), and for one crazy summer in 2003, as a firefighter with the National Park Service.
