Buffalo Campground is one of two facilities within the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area, about an hour's drive southwest of Denver, Colorado. Visitors enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities, including hiking, mountain biking and trout fishing.
The Buffalo Creek Recreation Area is home to a 40-mile trail system most popular with mountain bikers, but hikers and horseback riders enjoy the area as well. Several trailheads are within walking distance of the campground. The Lost Creek Wilderness Area can be accessed via the Colorado Trail, which stretches nearly 500 miles from Denver to Durango.
Buffalo Creek is a popular fishing stream for brook trout.
The campground offers single-family sites, some of which are designated for tent camping only. Each site is equipped with accessible picnic tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets are provided. No hookups are available.
The campground is situated near Buffalo Creek at an elevation of 7,400 feet in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Summer temperatures are mild and range from 75-80 degrees during the day to 55-65 degrees at night.
The drive along County Road 126 southwest from Pine Junction affords magnificent views of the valleys below. Pikes Peak, at 14,110 feet, can be seen in the distance and other prominent rock formations present themselves throughout the scenic drive.

Not too bad of a campground. We weren't sure if we could find a walk up campsite available so we headed up on a Wednesday in June. There are 36 sites of which 10 are FCFS (sites 29-38). We found a great spot to fit our 29' camper plus truck well.
Overall great camping trip. Bathrooms were clean, camp host was friendly and also made sure people were safe and following the rules.
Nice clean camping area. No wildlife though :( Also not much to do unless you have a mountain bike. There is a small creek, but no fishing. There are water spigots but according to the camp hosts the Government didn’t approve for them to be turned on this year… I tried to turn on butvno water came out :(
