Aspen is a unique tent only campground that offers guests a quiet (no generators allowed) and natural camping environment. From here, you are within easy walking distance of the Marina and Gallatin Beach. Though a smaller campground in total area, the 28 sites are spaced in a way to provide seclusion in some areas and almost adjoining for those that have a want for multiple sites. Situated on the shore of Eagle Lake, Aspen provides beautiful scenery and a diverse landscape – from pines to aspen trees and many sites are dappled with beautiful rock outcroppings. There is a central parking area (no RV’s allowed) and wheelbarrows are provided to help you pack your gear a short way to the site you have selected.
