Camp for a Cause! 100% of every camping spot reserved is a donation for ShesCHERIshed. Help us with this mission by camping with us! 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!

The vibe at Camp Cherished-Camp for a Cause
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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!
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!
