The cabins at Mueller State Park are beautifully expansive, giving you a luxurious getaway at a reasonable price. You have three opulent cabins to choose from that comfortably fit up to eight people. The Pine Cabin has a roaring fireplace and private deck overlooking aspen forests. The spacious Spruce Cabin has two levels for larger groups, with a sizable yard. And the deluxe Ponderosa Cabin features breathtaking views of Pikes Peak. It comes with luxury amenities, and a welcoming at-home feeling. Staying at the Mueller cabins puts you front and center to some of Colorado’s best hiking trails, skiing, hunting, and photography.

“This Colorado state park brings visitors year-round for all types of recreation. The views range from evergreens and aspen to Pikes Peak. The hiking trails are well-marked and lead to various ponds, abandoned buildings (from when this was a ranch) and an abundance of wildflowers. Fall is especially beautiful when the aspens turn gold. There are several well-maintained picnic areas and a visitors center where you can learn about the wildlife and geology.” There are no ‘bad’ spots in this park.”Kristen

“This is a lovely park about 30 minutes south of Colorado Springs. We saw deer wander around the campsites every morning and evening. From here we visited Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge and Pike’s Peak, all within 30 minutes to one hour’s drive. The bathhouse is extremely clean, with several private bathroom/shower rooms. There is also a laundry with 4 washers & dryers. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the folks are all friendly. I highly recommend!”Lori C.

The cabin sits at a towering 9,400 vertical feet, surrounded by a spruce forest. Mingus Ranch is a great place to rewind time and stay in an authentic homestead.

“National forest cabin that is affordable. Very rustic with no water and only one outlet. Cabin has an outhouse that is fifty feet from cabin. Located in a great area with San Isabel lake and Bishops castle nearby. Lots of hiking and off roading nearby. Two bedrooms upstairs and day bed down. Interesting history to the cabin, read about it before you go.”Carlos H.

State Forest State Park’s Bockman campground has 15 rustic cabins for rent. With so many options, you can have your wild cake and eat it, too. Most of the cabins sleep up to four people, with two larger group cabins. Some cabins come with flush toilets and electric stoves, but the primitive cabins have vault toilets, propane stoves, and separate showers. They all come with bunk beds and mattresses, but you’ll need to supply the bedding. Most of them have private decks and grills for outdoor picnics. They also have two deluxe cabins with private bathrooms, electricity, and running water. You’re steps away from hiking, boating, skiing, hunting, and more. These State Forest State Park cabins are the perfect answer for adventurers who want to live like pioneers.

“This campground is large and flat. There are lots of spots that are relatively close together, but it seems quite spacious. There are almost no trees in the campground, but the 360 degree views are worth it! The bathrooms were clean. There are lots of great activities to participate in very close by – fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling and more!”Jackie E.

You’ll have to cook outside and bring your own bedding, but you’re within walking distance to the boat launch, where you can fish (or ice fish) in Steamboat Lake. The cabins put you in a great location to hike, ski, hunt, or enjoy wildlife. Staying at Steamboat Lake’s cabins is a rugged experience that will leave a lasting impression.

“We traveled to this park from Jackson WY. The site is about 30-minute drive up a winding road from highway 40. It’s a large state park on a local reservoir. The mule deer were nightly visitors during our two night stay. The lake below can fill up on weekends and become very busy. The visitor center and office is on the road leading to the campsite. The staff were very helpful even with large summer crowds. This is a nice option if you are traveling to Steamboat Springs.”Steve & Ashley G.
