    Welcome to Red Canyon Park, nestled near Canon City, Colorado. This spot is a gem for those who appreciate rugged beauty and a bit of solitude. The park is known for its stunning red rock formations and scenic views that make it a fantastic place to explore and unwind.

    The campsites here are pretty basic but offer what you need for a comfortable stay. You'll find picnic tables and fire rings at many of the sites, though not all. Vault toilets are available, but don't expect them at every campsite. The park is free to use, which is always a nice bonus.

    One of the highlights of Red Canyon Park is its accessibility for both tent and RV camping. The sites are dispersed, giving you a sense of seclusion. Some spots are more level than others, so you might need leveling blocks if you're in a campervan or RV. The road can get a bit rough, especially after rain, so be prepared for some ruts and mud.

    Visitors have mentioned that the park is best enjoyed in the fall and spring when the weather is milder. Summer can get quite hot, so plan accordingly. The park is also a popular spot for local youth gatherings, but hopefully, your stay will be peaceful.

    For those who love to explore, there are plenty of trails and rock features to check out. Whether you're hiking along the seasonal river or climbing the red bluffs, there's something for everyone. Just remember to bring bug spray, as gnats and mosquitoes can be a nuisance.

    Overall, Red Canyon Park offers a beautiful, rugged camping experience with plenty of opportunities for adventure and relaxation. Enjoy your stay!

    Overview

    Davenport Campground was one of the first Forest Service campgrounds, and is near the now-abandoned Squirrel Creek Campground, the very first Forest Service campground in the country. In 2010, Davenport was rebuilt to evoke the original 1920s design. Adirondack shelters and a common cooking shelter with stone fireplaces were built and old-style log picnic tables add to the historic character of this campground. The campground offers access to an array of hiking, mountain biking, motorcycle and off-road vehicle trails.

    Recreation

    The 4.5-mile Squirrel Creek Trail is open to hiking, biking, horseback riding and motorcycle riding. This trail meets the original Squirrel Creek Campground site where a major flood, in 1947, washed out the never-reopened road and campground. Silver Circle, Second Mace, and South Creek Trails can be accessed nearby, too. Anglers enjoy casting for brook trout in Squirrel Creek.
