Unhelpful, must have a reservation

Be aware, you will not be allowed into the park without a prior reservation. My husband and I came late into the area and needed a place to sleep. The website did not say that reservations were REQUIRED, just that they were available. The attendant would not let me make a quick reservation on my phone, even when I mentioned that it looked like plenty of spots were available. She said “oh yes, I’ve got lots of spaces.” She kicked us out. I will not be going back.

Beautiful and Secluded

One of my favorite campgrounds in Colorado that I’ve found. Quiet and remote, but not far from a town. Lots of trails nearby. We hiked to Pikes Peak via the Devils Playground trail. Plenty of wildlife, flora, and fauna. There’s a stream running right by camp. Dog friendly, but keep an eye on them because there’s lots of mushrooms! The dirt road was a little rough in places, but if you drive slowly and carefully any kind of vehicle can make it up to the campground. Firewood is available; $7 for one bundle or $18 for 3 bundles. $18 per night for us with one car and a tent.

Unique

I tend to avoid RV campgrounds because I think they are usually crowded and a bit loud. Although our neighbors were rather loud, the campground was a cool place. It’s $30+tax for a night with a tent. The fire pits do not have grates and the bathrooms are just port a potties. You have to buy firewood from the hosts, they won’t let you burn wood that you bring in yourself. They do give you a little more for just $5 than most places. There is a swimming pool and hot showers. The dirt road to the campground is very easily accessible.

Secluded

The dirt road to this campground is a little rough, but still accessible in passenger cars. I have a front wheel drive Honda Accord. Cold at night and windy during the day. Make sure to stop at the Horseshoe campground to get firewood from the campground hosts before continuing another mile to Four Mile Campground. Campsite includes fire pit, picnic bench, bathrooms, and water pumps. Keep driving up the road just a little way to reach the trailhead for Limber Grove Trail. It’s about 3 miles in and out and you will walk through a really beautiful grove of ancient trees. Too much snow on Mt. Sherman for us to be able to even attempt the mountain. June 2019.

Nice find in a remote area

Lota of sites available, some nicely secluded, some not so secluded. Very clean bathrooms.
