Peaceful Valley Campground is situated in a glacial valley, on the banks of the Middle Saint Vrain Creek at an elevation of 8,500 feet in northern Colorado. The campground has some conifer trees with open grassy areas.
The Middle Saint Vrain Creek is a good fly-fishing stream where anglers cast for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout.
Many trails in the vicinity are open to hiking and biking, including Sourdough and Buchanan Pass Trails. Mountain biking is allowed on the first five miles of Buchanan Pass Trail.
The Bunce School Roads are popular among off-road enthusiasts.
There are 17 sites in the campground. Nine are suitable for RV camping and eight are more suitable for tents. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and grill. The maximum vehicle length that can be accommodated is 45 feet, although no utility hookups are available. There is a maximum of eight people per site; site #17 is oversized and will accommodate ten people. The roads in the campground are paved. There is one hand pump with potable water, trash dumpsters, vault toilets and firewood is for sale.
The campground is situated on the banks of the Middle Saint Vrain Creek in the mostly flat, glacial Peaceful Valley. A mixed conifer and aspen forest covers the area.
Rocky Mountain National Parkâ??s main entrance is 24 miles north in Estes Park. Estes Park is a full-service community.

Last October, I was planning on camping a night here or at the campground further up the road (Camp Dick). After driving through this campground, I decided to go on further up the road because this campground doesn’t have much trees or space between the sites. Otherwise, the campground is very scenic, well maintained, and is next to good trails. A creek runs along the south side of the campground, and you can start the Buchanan Trail hike further up the road past Camp Dick. There’s also a 4x4 trail up there.
October visit. Very mellow and beautiful. Clean restrooms
Stayed here overnight for some hiking in the nearby foothills. There are reservable sites, which I would recommend since it's a popular place nearby Boulder for some fishing, hiking and off roading and it only has 17 sites. It looked like about half those could accommodate and RV. The sounds around camp are going to be a mix of some wind in the trees, water running in the streams, and motorbike motors.
There are 2 washroom areas, no showers, and dumpsters. You can buy firewood from the camp host, who I assume is also servicing the other nearby campsite (Camp Dick). Each campsite has your typical fire pit and picnic table. Inot a big campground, but you're is this quiet valley surrounded by mountains and the stars at night were superb. There's an over spill parking lot for your recreational vehicles or extra camp mates.
