Red Rocks

My oldest daughter (27) and I went on our first trip without my husband along. We stayed at Indian Paintbrush Campground in Bear Creek Park in Lakewood, CO right next to Red Rocks Amphitheater. We went to a concert (Old Dominion) and it was a perfect set up. Lyft picked us up and dropped us off from our site. We could not have been closer. There were coyotes, owls, and rabbits in the huge urban park. Highly recommend this spot for concerts at one of the best venues ever.

Ponderosa Campground

This was a glorified parking lot.  It literally is a parking lot with the lines drawn to allow for campers to park parallel on the outside and have a wide spot down the middle.  Zero trees.  If you are on the side with the river, the river is nice but then the road is right there.  If you are on the side of the hill you have more privacy but no barrier between you and your neighbor.  The bathrooms are nice and the host was very diligent.  However, someone got their generator stolen in the middle of the night.  It's only good if you are using it as a base camp to have a great time hiking and fishing or checking out the nearby towns.  Great canyon, we saw a lot of wildlife - deer and turkey.
