Where to camp in Breckenridge?

Not sure if this is the best place to post this..

I'm looking for a spot close to Breck where I can pitch a tent and wake up early to go ride.. Everywhere I find cost like $17 a day. There has to be somewhere it's free... like BLM land or something. Any suggestions?

PS has anyone gotten away overnighting it in one of the shacks?

Tons of Forest Service land around Breck. You can camp all over Hoosier Pass. I'd look around there. It's very cooooold of course.

Yep, plenty of NFS land around. Grab a map and look around.

Right on thanks. I got a -15 BigAgnes bag, intergated pad and a 4 season tent. That I need to test out

Here's a piece of advice on the Big Agnes system...

When it's REALLY cold, pack an extra thin closed cell foam pad to put underneath the incorporated inflatable insulated pad. I have a Big Agnes too and I love it but when it's really cold, it's nice to have the extra insulation capability of the closed cell foam underneath. Nothing insulates like that stuff. You don't need much. Just about a half inch or so cut to shape to fit in the sleeve. You should be able to pick it up for $10 or so.
