Located approximately a two-hour drive southwest of Denver, at an elevation of 7,723', the Goose Creek Campground offers an opportunity for developed camping near the Lost Creek Wilderness. Recreational opportunties in the area include fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and scenic drives. Goose Creek runs through the campground and generally runs year round. Although not deep, the buddling brook supplies soothing sounds, opportunities for fishing, and a quaint atmosphere for camping. The Goose Creek Trailhead is close by and affords acces to the Lost Creek Wilderness via the Hankins Pass #630 and the Goose Creek #612 trails and is one of the reasons visitors use this campground.
As the only campground surviving the Hayman Fire, this little area is an oasis of green among the burnt surroundings. Being just minutes away from the Lost Creek Wilderness, this small campground is convienient for those hiking the Goose Creek or Hankins Pass trails and sees heavy use throughout the camping season. Host is available on site.
Lucked out and got site 6 around noon on a Saturday. Had access to the creek and hiking trails. Felt secluded. One of our favorite spots in Colorado!
Plenty of water when we went March of last year. Hiking is on the right side. Camping on the left. There are some pretty neat sites if you are in shape enough to get back there to then.
