Hey guys, figured this is as good a place as any to ask...

Being we are all truck guys and have a little more access to areas, anyone have some good camping suggestions?

Ideally I would like something within a few hours of Fort Collins, and a little less traveled. Plan on bringing dirt bike/atv's too. If it is near or on a small lake/pond, etc would be the "icing on the cake".

Perhaps they will chime in, and if not I'll drop them a pm in a day or so. Group trip later on, may not be too bad either...

Screw Rice, Make sure to take a look at the labor day 2013 camping thread. There is fishing near by as well! Yes it's a long drive but well worth it!
