Plenty of off-road vehicle trails are near the campground. Recommended rides include Mount Antero, Baldwin Lake, Tincup Pass, Hancock Pass, Pomeroy Lakes, Hancock Lakes and Williams Pass.

Chalk Creek Trailhead can be accessed nearby and provides access to the extensive Colorado Trail, which extends nearly 500 miles from Denver to Durango.
