Mummy Pass Creek Backcountry Campsite sits on the south side of Mummy Pass Creek in northern Rocky Mountain National Park. The single site, located at 10,640 feet, lies among spruce trees and meadows in a broad hanging valley carved by glaciers. It’s a great campsite if you’re visiting Mirror Lake or climbing Comanche Peak or Fall Mountain. The campsite is 4.6 miles from the Corral Creek Trailhead, via Corral Park, Poudre River, and Mummy Creek trails. The hike gains a net 640 feet from the trailhead, with a 920-foot gain and a 280-foot loss. Allow five or six hours to backpack to the site. There’s no privy so bring wag bags for waste. Get water from Mummy Pass Creek, but boil or treat before using. The campsite is free of snow by early July.
Recommended season(s): July through September.
