Del Campo Peak is in the Monte Cristo area, a region with a rich history of attempted mining development in the early 1900s. These attempts were unsuccessful and the town of Monte Cristo abandoned. Del Campo is named for a mine on its slopes. Foggy Lake is nestled above Gothic Basin, a beautiful alpine basin surrounded by Del Campo Peak, Castle Rocks and Gothic Peak. This can be a problem area for car break-ins, so try not to leave anything tempting in your car.
