McClure Campground is a FREE Forest Service Campground roughly 30 miles north of Paoinia, and roughly the same distance south of Carbondale, Colorado, along route 133. It's just to the south of McClure Pass, and as you might expect, at some elevation--somewhere in the 8,000' area if I'm not mistaken. There is a 14 day stay limit. This is a lovely, heavily wooded location set amidst a mixture of aspens and conifers. I remember walking around the campground after a rain. It was silent and green, the moist air laden with the the scents of the forest.
