Devil's Head Campground resides at the base of the Devil's Head Trail. Rock formations dot the landscape and provide outstanding views of the surrounding area. No dump station, or hook-ups available. Peak season is Memorial Day through Labor Day. During peak season, the campground offers full service (host on site, trash). Extended season has reduced services. This campground appears on the following maps: Pike National Forest USGS Quad Devil's Head National Geographic Trails Illustrated #135 (Deckers / Rampart Range)
Greeted by the groundskeeper, seemed genuinely interested in us being safe and taken care of. About 1/4 mile from Devil's Head trailhead.
The camping closer to devil's head is a bit crowded but once you head down towards the creek (went towards Jackson Creek down Jackson Creek Rd.), it's gorgeous with streams and giant rock walls with several secluded areas or large areas for big groups.
This campground is one of many driving up route 67. They're all closed in the winter and through the beginning of May. Very basic sites are available no amenities. Make sure you have 4-wheel drive available in the early spring.
I loved this area and have been there twice. Have used the campsites once and they are very scenic and have what you need for primitive camping with being able to drive your car to it. The campsites also double as picnic areas when not used by campers and you can enjoy the wildlife, like chipmunks. The fire tower is a must!!!! Yes I hiked (fairly easy) up to it both times. And yes I went up the steps to the top both times too. The view is worth it and the Ranger makes it a great learning experience. Not sure if Billy is still there but he was great and there was a write up on him in People one year, which inspired me to go there on my next trip out there. This is truly a trip that needs to be on a bucket list!!!! (As a side note, lots of photos attached but I had to use the ones in my scrapbook since a computer crash wiped out the photos themselves, enjoy. Did find just a few that survived.)
This is a wonderful hike on a well maintained trail. The views from the fire lookout at the top of a huge granite rock are breathtaking. Be sure to bring your kids as the can he a free certificate from the site ranger if he is available.
This is one of our favorite hiking areas, especially in the fall.
Incredible! My first time In Colorado. It was a little busy but once we found our campsite you would never know it! Awesome views! Campsites very far apart.
