This site is located just off our long, winding driveway. It's relatively flat and surrounded by ponderosa pines and cedar trees. It offers a good amount of privacy.—but you are able to see our home from this site. You'll hear lots of birds and may see some wildlife. You're welcome to hike our private, one-mile hiking trail (moderate to difficult level) to the top of our mountain and have a picnic there. You may also want to venture out to see nearby sites: Horsetooth Reservoir and Horsetooth hiking trail are about 25 minutes away. Downtown Fort Collins is about a 45 minute drive, and Rocky Mountain National Forrest and Estes Park are about an hour away.

We know many people who travel to Colorado want to enjoy their weed. Our property isn’t the place for weed, smoking, or any type of drug use. Please keep that in mind when booking. Thanks!

**This is a very remote property and the roads are steep and have sharp turns. Please don't book if you're not comfortable with rough roads or if you do not have an all-wheel or 4-wheel drive. **

Challenging destination, nice views

This site is probably better suited for tent camping. We had a small tab-style camper and could barely fit in the site, and it was intense getting parked as the site is protruding at a 90 degree angle off a decently pitched gravel driveway. The floodlight from thier house shone down on our site at night. Some may be comforted by the proximity to the hosts' house but we found it somewhat intrusive. The road leading to the site is (as the name says) winding and steep but once you get settled, the views are amazing! The trail on premisis is moderate to difficult as there is lots of elevation to deal with, but worth it if you are physically able. Just be aware of the actual accommodations and the challenges. The hosts were friendly overall and enabled us to have as much privacy as possible considering thier house was about 30 yards away.

Thanks for your review! Yes, this camping spot is close to the house, but there are several trees between and a driveway, which affords some privacy. We set this site close to the house for two reasons: 1) It's one of the few flat places on the property where someone can pull a vehicle in, and 2) This area is a very remote and we have seen cougars, bears, bobcats, etc. nearby. Having the site close provides some protection. That also explains the floodlights. We turn them on in the evening to take the dogs out one last time before bed, but don't leave them on all night. I truly hope we didn't forget and leave them shining all night on you!

This is such a cool spot in the canyon behind horsetooth! As another reviewer said, the site is fairly close to the host’s home, but we were never bothered after arrival unless we approached them first. Robyn was very helpful and even loaned us a long-handled lighter! The trail they have created up to the top/meadow is an awesome touch and actually a real “hike” we would say which was nice to have access to steps from the site. My only advice would be caution from bringing a trailer at all. We had a small tab and it hardly fit in the site comfortably, but even trickier is the driveway set-up to back it in. It is steep and when we went it was still a little wet from snow melt which was quite a challenge. Overall, we would definitely return, just without the trailer, and might even try their new addition backpacking site up on the meadow :)
