I will be going to Leadville for a solo weekend in July, and would like to bag Elbert while up there, but need to be clean and presentable on Sunday. I read in one of the postings that there is a shower at some grocery in Leadville - anyone know the name? Also, I have a bit of trepidation about staying near Elbert after reading about the drunks/rednecks up there - saw that before, and would rather not catch
the sequel. Any better places to pitch a tent or even a cheap room?

I've stayed at the Elbert campground a few times and the only thing that bothered me was the mosquitoes.

We've stayed there a couple times (including with our dog!) and love it. Its nice, clean, inexpensive, and a hell of a lot of fun. We've met some really great people there.
If you don't want to stay there I think you can pay just to take a shower.
