CAMPING COLORADO

Tom Bennett


April 19, 2024

The Tom Bennett camping area is located in the Arapaho National Forest in Colorado, known for its stunning natural beauty and panoramic views of the Continental Divide. The area provides visitors with easy access to a variety of outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, fishing, and mountain biking.

Nearby points of interest include the historic mining town of Georgetown, located just a few miles away, and the popular ski resort of Loveland Ski Area, only a 30-minute drive from the campground.

The campground offers a range of amenities, including fire rings, picnic tables, and vault toilets. However, there is no potable water or electricity available at the site. The campsite is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and there are a total of 12 campsites available.

An interesting fact about the area is that it was once a popular spot for gold mining during the late 1800s. Visitors can still see remnants of old mining structures and tunnels in the surrounding hills.

The best time of year to visit the Tom Bennett camping area is during the summer months, from June to August, when temperatures range from the mid-50s to mid-70s Fahrenheit. However, visitors should be prepared for sudden changes in weather and temperature fluctuations at higher elevations.
