There are countless reasons why you would want to camp at Glen Isle Resort!  Glen Isle is located in Bailey, Colorado which is the perfect vacation spot for friends, family, reunions, or a private get away.

Glen Isle was originally built for an escape from hectic Denver. Once you cross the bridge into the resort, you’ll understand why it has served as a peaceful getaway for over a century. The Platte River welcomes you and divides the property from Highway 285. If you love to fish, you have a mile of the river to use at your disposal. If hiking is your forte and you desire to explore nature, Glen Isle is surrounded by the National Forest, Lost Creek Wilderness, Payne Gulch Trailhead, the Colorado Trail and many private acres for you to explore.

You will find history narrates the Native American’s story where Glen Isle was once used as an Indian encampment, and numerous trees still stand today that were culturally modified to mark sacred treasures. If you seek tranquility, you will find hummingbirds and chipmunks always seeking an audience to entertain.  

(Glorious Glen Isle was unoccupied for six years.  We are in the process of renovating hundred year old cabins, and the 8,000 square foot lodge.  Our camping areas have a river setting, glorious valley views, and a private setting surrounded by the National Forest.  However, there is renovation and construction going on around some areas of the property.  Additionally, as you can see from the map and read in a few reviews, we are just on the other side of the beautiful Platte River from Highway 285.   About 75% of our guests are not bothered by the busyness  of the this highway but others can be more sensitive to the noise.  We want Glen-Isle campers to enjoy their experience as much as possible, so  If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to ask.  Our goal is to share the property with others, and to have the "happiest" campers in Colorado!)

Awesome little spot, super great and friendly host! There is a lot of history behind this place; Greg and Mary are doing such an amazing job to refurbish and facelift this beautiful site. This will definitely be a repeat trip, more than enough room for tent campers and cabin campers. Can’t wait to see this place next time!! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality Greg and Mary!!

Snagged a sweet spot right by the beautiful flowing river. Awesome lookout point.Cute flowing creeks throughout

We chose a tent site close to the river. The sites were spacious and easy to get to. The sites are also right off of 285, so there is traffic noise, but it blended with the sound of the river to provide white noise. There are plenty of trees, so the sites are also shady. Glen Isle is a treasure! Mary Ruth was kind enough to give us a tour of the 1890s lodge they are restoring. The history is fascinating and walking through the lodge is like stepping back in time. Both Mary Ruth and Greg were wonderful hosts! Love how close this is to Denver. We will be back!

We had a wonderful stay. We are a family of 5 -- 2 adults, 2 kids, and an elderly woman. Our host greeted us when we arrived, explained the layout of the sites and brought us to the site along the river. It was perfect for our group. While the river site was close to the highway, we didn't find the highway noise to be bothersome at all. Having folks on both ends of the age spectrum, we thought the site met all of our needs. We were able to drive right up to the site, be next to the river and have access to a portable toilet. The site was also cleared of weeds and most large rocks, making it comfortable for everyone to sleep while still having lots of tall trees to hang our hammocks from. We would definitely stay here again!

We even had space to play frisbee. Nice site! We pitched two of our tents and had plenty of space to spread out.Hung our hammock in a shady spot by the river

A real hidden gem! Beautiful and secluded campsites; breathtaking views; and wonderful hosts. I especially enjoyed the tour of the lodge that was built in the 1800s to serve the wealthy passengers passing through on the train - very interesting history and some creepy stories! It’s a credit to the owners that they’re so dedicated to preserving this 100+ year old resort.

I cannot say enough good things about the hosts. I got the seclusion I wanted with my tent site and they were honest about the traffic noise, which I did not find bad at all. There are sites on the upper outcropping over the lower sites that you can camp at if you prefer ( with zero traffic noise). Also, they helped me change my tire when it got a flat and were wonderful with my daughters, letting them feed the horses carrots and giving them a ride to the site in their open-top jeep.

They were incredibly accommodating, kind, interesting and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It really is a jewel. The history is amazing, the lodge is extremely cool and I hope to come back here again and again! I came looking for seclusion and I got far more than that. By the way, the hiking is also amazing. The views are spectacular if you hike to the top of the outcropping and look down over the valley!

 This is our site and our tents are off to the right behind trees, completely secluded. Wonderful way to eat breakfast!  This is the view from the upper sites. We camped on the lower side by the creek and hiked up here.  My girls enjoyed cooling off in the tiny creek behind the lodge.
