lodging around gunnison, crested butte?

I am gonna wing elk hunting on my own next year. Not wanting to spend all the money for my wife to go as a nonhunter, I figure we will spend the extra on putting her in for a tag as well. My question is, does anyone know of any place decent, close to public land to stay at a decent rate?

Do a search on the Gunnison COC. There are plenty of motels in Gunny, but they fill up way in advance. There are some rental cabins in Almont between Gunny and Crusted Butt, but those tend to be a bit pricey.

You could also pick up a rental popup trailer in co. springs or pueblo and camp anywhere . First season isn't that cold and the heaters do pretty well in those and most have a toilet too , but be shure to charge the battery every day off your truck as the furnace do run a lot. I hunted unit 55 a few years ago got into elk around look out mountan area and the Waunta hot springs and Ohio area.Also if it is a hot dry fall you might try Napoleon pass north of Pitkin come in from the comberlin pass road as the road out of Tin cup is NASTY this is very high and steep country glass the steep chutes and basins.But these are just a few of a hundred good spots to hunt in those areas come out next summer and check some out ,I know 54 also has good hunting. Good luck!!
