Staying at Campy was wonderful! The drive into Campy was lovely, with amazing views of Mt. Sopris. This vintage trailer is adorable, and very well stocked with kitchen essentials, linens, outdoor fireplace + firewood, etc. Candace lives just up the hill and was very helpful + welcoming throughout my stay. Campy feels very private and secluded, nestled along the edge of the forest. There is an electric fence which provides some added protection from wildlife and surrounds the entire outdoor living space, Campy and the outdoor toilet/shower. I actually saw a black bear while hiking, but slept like a baby knowing the electric fencing was in place. I hiked right from Campy + thru Candace's yard, up a trail that connected to a forest service road to White River National Forest and a few alpine lakes. Seeing the bear along this road was no doubt exciting, but was also a good reminder to stay alert, safe and prepared in bear country. You can drive directly to Dinkle Lake for kayaking, paddle boarding, lake side picnics, or park and hike to the more secluded Thomas Lakes. All in all, I really enjoyed my time at Campy and will be back!

This was an awesome camper to stay in! We were super comfy and warm at night, the stars were beautiful - it felt like we were in the 1950’s!

Great host and cute place. Clean linens and clean camper. It’s pretty far out there, but not so big of a deal. Campy is next to a long driveway to the host’s house. I would have expected to see/ hear almost no one. However, there were vehicles up and down the driveway through 11:30 PM at night and very early in the morning. We crashed early because we had early plans the next day, so early morning traffic didn’t bother me so much. Headlights in the windows until late did though.

Overall I would recommend. Just understand it’s not as secluded as you may want. Again, the host is great and very helpful with all questions I had.
