The camping in Aspen is done in a few different types of environments, thanks to the widespread area that this campground sits on. Guests are treated to everything from open plains to densely forested regions, with the 148 total sites peppering a few different habitats. There are four different campsite loops to choose from, all of which keep individual spots a fair distance away from each other, ensuring a bit of overnight seclusion. These sites come standard with fire rings and picnic tables. No showers are available here as the bulk of these sites are quite primitive. Vault toilets are located on each loop, and a dump station exists for guests coming in some sort of recreational vehicle. Camping costs listed here are for overnight stays and do not reflect park admission costs.
Boating is also quite popular for guests staying at Aspen, with the area located partially on the shores of Woods Canyon Lake. If you don't have a water vessel of your own, Aspen's marina offers boat rentals throughout the warmer months, as well as a small grocery store that caters to both boaters and overnight visitors. If you've got your canine accompanying you for a day of boating, make sure you keep them clear of any indoor structures in or around the marina.
Hiking is done in Aspen on its roughly 1-mile paved trail, which wraps around the circumference of the lake. This path is perfect for less-than-able individuals who still want to soak in all of the incredible lake views. Dogs are welcome to walk this loop as well, provided they're kept on a leash and owners take care of any messes they might leave on the ground.
Several paved roads surrounding Aspen are perfect for cycling. Visitors can regularly spot large packs of serious-looking cyclists pumping up the steep grades as they earn that day's dinner. If you'd like to hit these roads with two wheels, make sure you bring all suggested safety gear for the sport.
