Hermit Basin Recreation Area - Custer County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Despite its inviting name, this area is private and posted, for use only by guests of the Hermit Basin Lodge or by written permission from its office. However, the two medium-small ponds here can be easily scanned from the county road, and both have the potential to attract ducks particularly in late fall.

Habitat: Pond
Directions: From the intersection of CO 96 and 69, go south on CO 69 for 4 blocks to Hermit Road (CR 160), on the right. Travel east for 2.7 miles to Kettle Lane (CR 137) and take a right (south). Go one miles and take a right (west) onto Muddy Road (CR 150) and look for the ponds on the right in about 2 miles.
