This camp is in the sand dunes park. Has quite a bit of amenities. You will see and hear neighbors but there was enough space to be comfortable. Great site for everything you need
So much to do in this little area-lakes, trails, horses. Very close to red rocks. This is still in town so great for beginners
At the base of three different 14ers, camping along the road by the river if you can’t stay at the lake. This site has a fee, toilet, no water on site, but there is water from lake a river. Good fishing along the river and great for doing the 14ers then coming back to camp
no great for sedans after about a mile from trailhead parking lot.
This campsite is just outside of Denver, good for new campers or those who want to be more in town. Lots to do nearby
I love this site! It’s about an hour from Denver. Great first come first serve. By a creek, we saw a variety of wildlife including deer and a moose. Has some trails around. It’s free, first come first serve, nice flat ground for tents. Just outside of winter park if you need to run to town. No amenities.
Had to reserve well ahead but was worth it. Right on the lake, good amount of space between spots, close to Steamboat. Bathrooms were clean, camp hosts were nice.
I loved this campsite. There was a small creek and plenty of wildlife. It was expensive for what it was, $19 as of May ‘18. No water, toilet. Had to cross creek to get to the site. There was plenty of space, but you can see and hear neighbors. No trash.
This is not a place for a quiet mountain trip. Expect to be very close to your neighbors, have cars driving by and day use for the lake. Otherwise, it’s a great spot. The lake is beautiful, and was enjoyable. No drinking water on site, no showers, restrooms and trash are on site. Price seems high but compared to the cost of day use and camping nearby it’s reasonable. Reserve ahead, gets booked.
This site had no amenities-no water, bathroom, etc. the lower spots were off the creek. Biggest appeal was not being close to any other campers. The spots, especially higher up the mountain, are pretty far apart. Not a lot of trees or shade. Views were awesome
Pros- clean bathroom, friendly camp host, only $11 per night as of May ‘18, right by trail heads for zapata falls and zapata lake, quick to get to the sand dunes views were incredible
cons-no water on site, road up rough for sedans.
