Directions to Camp:
From Colorado Springs, follow Highway 24 west to the town of Lake George. Entering the town of Lake George, take the first left onto County Road 96. A good landmark for this turn is Starky’s General Store. Turn South just before the store. (If you cross the river on Highway 24 West, you have gone too far!)
Follow County Road 96 (about 1 mile) to the 11-Mile Canyon Entrance. Turn right into 11-Mile Canyon and proceed to the Forest Ranger Station. Tell the gate attendant that you are heading to Camp Alexander, as entry fee is free.
Follow 11-Mile Canyon past Riverside Campground about 2 miles (watch for oncoming traffic!). Look for the Camp Entrance on the left. Follow the road to the parking lot where a staff guide will greet you and take you to your campsite.
