Visited the Reverend Ridge campground the weekend of March 6 for some early camping. The setting was a bit snowy but spectacular. The trailer pad was icy but cleared, and after some shoveling we were able to find the fire pit! If it is this great in the spring, imagine how great it is in the summer!
Trees, trails and tranquility just an hour from Denver? Yes please! This is one of my new favorite spots -perfect for a quick weekend escape. We loved the roomy pull through spots for our camper, easy electrical hookups, super clean bathrooms and shower house. So many other campgrounds in Colorado have been hit hard by the pine beetle epidemic, but Reverends Ridge still has towering trees that make the loops feel private and remote. Dont mIss the easy hike to Panorama Point. From there you can let link to the rest of the extensive trail system through the park.
There are RV, Tent and Yurt camping sites. Bathrooms, showers, dishwashing area and laundry facilities but still in nature and beautiful views and trails, especially in the non-electric tent sites. Great staff at the check in area.
This campground was absolutely amazing! It was so easy to get to and the facilities were extremely impressive. They offer a coin-laundry room, showers, and clean bathrooms. We were tent camping but had a small u-haul behind our car and there was plenty of room in the parking lot for it. Our site was perfect, we were tucked into loop F, but set far enough back that it felt like we were completely alone. The night was clear and the stars were absolutely amazing to see. I love the fact that this campground is so close to many of the trails in Golden Gate State Park. In the morning we got up and hiked the Mule Deer Trail and the views from the top were well worth the hike!
This campsite is amazing for the family. With reservations accepted one can be sure that they will have a spot waiting for them. Fire rings and bathrooms are available at this site. You will have neighbors but the views and hiking (Racoon's Trail) make it worth it.
Mother Nature: This was a phenomenal state park. Many multiuse trails. Get up early and drive mountain base road…we caught a great view of a moose. Panorama Point had a breath taking view.
Hygiene: Laundry facilities on site. Showers weren't warm ar the end of a long day and will cost ya $1.00 for the first 4 minutes and 25 cents every minute after. The state doesn't provide hand soap in the bathrooms.
Reverends Ridge Loop A: facilities within walking distance for restroom and dishes. Electricity and water were great for us semi-tent campers. We had great camping neighbors. Not much deadwood on the ground. Fire wood $5.00 per bundle.
The campground is in a beautiful area near Golden. There are plenty of hiking trails in the park some easy some difficult. Make sure you leave out prepared. The sites are not very level so be prepared to use your blocks. When we where there, there were bear in fhe campground.
We came up for an adventure and an adventure we had! Beautiful scenery, solid campsite, the drive out was lovely with the turning aspens. 10/10!
This area has gotten very crowded in years past but is nice if you are new to camping.
