Two or three friends and I are planning on road tripping from Madison, Wisconsin to Colorado over summer break this year. We haven't set a specific destination in Colorado (we are just thinking about going there, it is our top choice a the moment). Ideally, to minimize cost, we thought about camping at night. During the day we would travel some more to visit mountains, lakes, etc.
Do you know of any scenic parks with free camping? Any suggestions for places to see or to hike are welcome too. (Or any suggestions you have for anything, really!) Thanks!
