too close to colorado springs. works a a early season test trip but it to close too the front range so always overcrowded. bonus: go to cripple creek opposed to a campfire.
Mueller State Park is a great location, close to Colorado Springs and far away enough to have that quiet camping experience. There were amazing views of Pikes Peak and so many camping spots. We had a group of us, so we found two camping spots together and across the road from vault toilets. The 5 kids in our group had a great time and I was impressed with how clean the campsites were kept. I would highly recommend camping at Mueller State Park and would love to return for another camping experience.
Some friends and I camped here in early October. It got a bit chilly at night, two layers, smartwool socks, a Carhart beanie, sleeping pad plus a medium temp sleeping bag kept me semi warm in our tent. The hikes we went on were beautiful and the restrooms were clean and close to our site. Because it was a last minute reservation we ended up in the RV section of the campsite so it was a little nosier than neccessary. We saw the park ranger ride through about every half hour to hour during our weekend stay. I would defintely stay there again!
Fabulous visit. we came into the park last minute. Stayed during the week but knew the weekend would be fully booked. The morning on that Friday we packed up and asked the ranger, they had a cancellation and we got to stay the weekend!
Nice and very clean.
Beautiful State Park with great facilities and very helpful personnel. $7/daily fee…park is up on a ridge at almost 10,000 ft just west of Pikes Peak. Lots of trees…Aspens and Spruce. Campsites were almost all ideal and many have electrical hookups. There are also some walkup tent sites. Clean vault toilets and many water spigots and bear proof trash cans. There was also a centrally located bldg with flush toilets and a sink to wash dishes. Also a building with coin operated showers and laundry area…all very clean and relatively new. We enjoyed hiking on several of the many trails. The rangers have presentations most nights…bears, beavers, etc. Lots of families with kids…also a playground. We went on a guided bird watching walk one morning…fun experience. The campsites book up months in advance but we lucked out finding a terrific site about a week out (from a cancellation on reserveamerica.com) The campground was fully booked but was still peaceful and quiet. We'll definitely return!
Beautiful campground. Not a bad site in the whole park. Very clean and good space between sites. We stayed in a 26' travel trailer. Electric hookups available. Sites are all paved back-in or pull thru and pretty level. Great level gravel areas to pitch tent as well at each site. This is bear country. No bear boxes available, so bring your own or lock in car. Great hiking trails of all abilities. Great visitor center. Fishing only available w/ .5-2.5 mile hike into back country. Close to lots of activities in Cripple Creek Woodland Park etc.
Mueller is a wonderful state park. Loads of hiking with lots of abandoned home sites. The facilities are top notch. We haven’t been at a bad campsite yet.
Great location within Colorado's Mueller State Park. Easy access to trails, visitor center, and scenic drives. Nice large site with level gravel tent pad, large table, and nice fire pit. Nearby sites seemed to be a good distance away.
This was a last minute decision to try this campground - but it was a GREAT decision! Amazing views - and we were only about 1/2 way up (the rest was not open yet). Showed up after hours - so, got to drive around and pick the one we liked the best (protected from wind & close to the pit toilets). Got down to 28 degrees - so, we ate breakfast inside the camper-van. Will definitely chose to stay there again in the future!
