No dogs allowed on trails. They are allowed in the campsite, and on the roads, but that’s it.
A lot of miles of hiking/ biking trails. Rv camp sites are close together, but well maintained. I'll be back.
Our family of 5.5 (I’m 20 wks pregnant) tent camped at site 065 at Prospectors Ridge . It is the furthest walk in site but the view IS AMAZING. About 350 yds to walk so keep that in mind when hauling in stuff. The vault toilets are at the parking lot and clean and there is water there too. A short walk from the parking lot, there is a nice playground, washing machines, showers, bathrooms, water jug filling stations, vending machines. There is a change machine there too Bc you need quarters for showers and using the washer and dryers. The days are hot at this time and the nights are cool. There are large bear boxes for use. There was a nice man driving a gator around offering firewood every night but we had some. Camp sites are a little close but still private . Several short (1 mile ish) hikes at this park and a nice visitor center! We would go again! I’m not sure we’d chose the last site but the view was unbeatable.
This is a really large campground for a state site, the weekend we visited it was full with no available sites. It should be noted that this campground does not allow for day use, only overnight camping. There are many trailhead from the campground and lots of families and kids but many of the trails do not allow for dogs, so be aware of that as well. It does offer many amenities like a dump station and playgrounds. We will come back later in the fall and hopefully it will be less busy. We like the quiet outdoors so this was a little busy for us.
Beautiful place to camp with electric hookups. My kids loved playing at the playground and exploring the nearby national monument of Florissant Fossil Beds. Was very chilly at night when we went in June.
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.
