You can expect trees, privacy, and peaceful quiet land to relax, with beautiful views (in certain areas) of Chatfield Reservoir, the Rocky Mountains, and more! Only 15 minutes to 'town' where there's a gas station (to purchase firewood), a great pizza place, Piezanos, and the famous Bud's Bar (with amazing burgers) if you don't feel like cooking while camping. Enjoy privacy camping, yet still close to Rampart Range, the town of Sedalia or Castle Rock for convenience. Or head to Deckers, and the South Platte River for Fishing!

My friends and I drove to Camp Cherished for a night away from the stress of college. It was so incredibly peaceful and rejuvenating, and we had a blast exploring the property, hanging out at the campfire, and cooking dinner outside. The host, Natalie, met up with us to show us around the property and explain the purpose of the camp. She was so welcoming and hospitable, and she sent her sons to set up a table for us to use. Natalie is opening her land to campers as a way to fundraise for her non-profit organization, She’s CHERIshed, which aims to aid survivors of domestic violence. Natalie will be building a sanctuary for women that have been abused, and 100% of the proceeds of camping will go towards this project.
Staying at Camp Cherished was exactly what my friends and I needed after a long week of midterms, and we were amazed that such a beautiful place was just a short drive from Denver. Definitely bring a hammock and keep your eyes open for the deer!

We had an awesome time at Camp Cherished. The site feels very secluded, despite being only 30 min from Denver. Parking was easy, a nice picnic table and fire ring were set up when we arrived. We'll be coming back soon!

Beautiful area, very convenient / easy to get to. The hostess was kind and showed us around the property (setup a nice picnic table as well!). During our stay, we were able to hike around on her property for about an hour - gorgeous views and some neat rock formations. There was minimal debris and her property was generally very clean. She and her mother-in-law both live on the property, but didn't intrude on our experience. The roads are dirt with 1 or 2 spots with significant incline which would probably be difficult to traverse in wet conditions without AWD. There is a firepit available (very cozy setup between two boulders), but we didn't feel completely comfortable using it as it is right behind her mother-in-law's house and we were interested in a more private camping experience.

All-in-all, a great trip, great hostess, gorgeous landscape and we would definitely recommend Camp Cherished. Also very happy to pay a bit extra to support her non-profit advocacy for domestic violence victims!

Great place for a fire and plenty of seating for a small group! Quiet and peaceful. Close enough to town that there is some air traffic, but not often. Outhouse was better than digging a hole. High clearance vehicle recommended. My highlander handled the road fine. Not sure a car with low clearance would have. Beautiful views! We saw wildlife in the afternoon.

We had a big group with a reservation at Sand Dunes that fell through very last minute. We had all our cars packed up and found Camp Cherished on Hipcamp. Literally an hour before we arrived we booked and were contacted by the sweet host Natalie. She met us and showed us around the property. She was so sweet and accommodating. Her family and her mother in law live on the property, but you would never know! It felt very secluded but also safe. The space was the perfect size for our 10 people. It is a short drive to Devils Head, which was unfortunately closed the weekend we went, but we honestly just enjoyed exploring the property and climbing the rocks!!

While maybe on the more expensive side, IT IS WORTH IT! The land is beautiful, the money goes to a great cause and the hosts could not be sweeter! We loved the idea of being able to support such an incredible ministry just by enjoying a weekend away. Highly recommend to anyone :)
