Basalt

Go camping in Basalt, Colorado! Frying Pan River and the Roaring Fork River close by for day trips

Nestled between the majestic Sopris and Basalt mountains, cross-country skiing, hiking and mountain biking trails abound through thousands of acres of pristine mountain wilderness. Today, Basalt is known as a vacation mecca for families and sports enthusiasts. Located between Glenwood Springs and Aspen, world-class skiing and cultural opportunities are only minutes away. Amid the myriad of activities, Basalt still preserves it original, quaint charm. This fishing paradise sits at the confluence of two Gold Medal rivers, the Frying Pan River and the Roaring Fork River, which appropriately roar out of the Sawatch Range east of Aspen. The Roaring Fork’s waters slow considerably as they reach Basalt, entering town with a pleasant gurgle. Look for serious whitewater rafting and kayaking from west of Aspen to Basalt, while leisurely float trips drift down the 12-mile lower part of the Roaring Fork, from Basalt to Carbondale. Ruedi Reservoir offers the most beautiful setting for windsurfing, sailing and skiing. Nearby White River National Forest, which blankets Basalt on both sides, is ideal for fishing or hiking. Ruedi Reservoir is a popular place for paddleboarders. Frying Pan River cabins are also a safe bet for a quality vacation.
