East of Aspen, Lincoln Creek Road provides a beautiful base camp or overnight camping spot.  Along the road there are 22 dispersed primitive camping spots. The road is suggested for four-wheel drive only, as it does get muddy and bumpy. There no vault toilets or no other amenities with the exception of a few designated metal fire pits.

For a more established stay, there is designated camping at the Lincoln Creek Campground just a half-mile from the highway. Bathrooms and trash bins are provided for the $10 camping fee. There are eight designated spots, all offering views of the surrounding mountain valley.  Lincoln Creek flows to the west side of the campground and can be a good spot for swimming or fishing. Within 20 minutes of Aspen and Independence Pass, this campground is a centrally located spot for accessing some of the Aspen area's most beautiful attractions.
