Welcome to a unique spot off the beaten path with access to all the best outdoor activities Colorado has to offer and to top it all off, you can camp or hammock near our new little coffee shop ‘The Left Hand Stand‘ at the southwestern end of our property! We offer fresh baked goods made daily, coffee, chai, tea, lemonade and an assortment of snacks and refreshments. Please stop in for a complimentary cup of coffee or tea during your stay!
As you can see from the map, this location is not deep in the woods and is near a main road, but we like to think it’s central location to everything these beautiful mountains has to offer makes it worth it!
There is one maybe two (depending on the size of your tent) spots near the fire pit (#1/#2) adjacent to the coffee shop in what we call our “sideyard”, another two spots on the east side of our home across from our small chicken flock (#3,#4), another spot located inside a cove like corner of the northeastern end of our property beneath the road and another one across from this on the opposite side of the driveway inside the Aspens (#5). You’re welcome to find the best and most suitable spot for yourself anywhere on our property with your tent. Please ask if you have questions about which spot might work best for you!
Brainard Lake is mere minutes away and Nederland or Estes Park are in opposite directions about half an hour from here with Boulder is only about 45 minutes away too and Denver approximately an hour and fifteen minutes or so.
We offer a fire pit in our backyard (for the times when a fire ban isn’t in effect) and there is a porta-potty near the coffee shop so please don’t use the woods! And always pack out your own trash! We have a washer/dryer that you’re welcome to as well but we do ask for an extra small fee for their use. If you’d like a shower, we also ask a small fee for it’s use as well. Please pre-purchase these amenities at the time of your booking. We also accept Venmo/PayPal should you decide to purchase this service during your stay.
We’re always happy to share our local knowledge for the best spots to hike, bike, climb, or fish so definitely grab some local knowledge and a coffee and a pastry from The Left Hand Stand before you head out for the day too! If you have any questions about anything at all, please feel free to ask.
We look forward to hosting you!

Aspen grove tent site a+
This was a great site to stay for a few nights! It is close enough to many parks and not too far out from Boulder! The site was clean and the ability to use the owner’s restroom and shower was great! There is a coffee shop right next to the site, which is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or a snack. The hosts were very hospitable too!
Awesome stay! Nice secluded spot somewhat close to the road but didn't bother us at all. So nice to have access to bathroom/shower and also amazing to have a cafe so close to to our tent. Went hiking nearby and had a blast!
A great time!
We loved our stay with Isaac and Ren. The proximity to a number of fishing spots and hiking trails make it a great place to stay. We were only able to take advantage of just a couple due to our short stay. Isaac was more than willing to share the secrets of the area and even offered us a free night stay when we had to leave early due to our own poor planning around my wife's school schedule. The out house was clean and unlocked during our visit. Their dog was delightful and leashed to keep him near their home. The sites were clean and free of trash. My one wish is that we were in one of the other tent sites due to our tent was a 10X14 and the site we had was just big enough. This is again on us because a 10X10 would have fit fine. All in all we had a great time and hope others will find it as enjoyable as we did! One other warning about some of the available fishing/hiking. Since the site isn't that far from Boulder, the Brainard state park actually had a line to get in by around 9:30. So as the saying goes, "The early bird gets the worm... and the parking spot."
Not for me, but it might be for you
I have mixed feelings about this site. The listing and the photos made it seem like it was everything that I was looking for, but upon arriving I quickly realized that it was not for me. I am not an experienced camper or a fan of more primitive style camping so that is probably why I feel the way I do.
However, it might be the place for you depending on your needs and expectations. Here is a list of my personal pros and cons.
- Close to Rocky Mountain National Park and other nature attractions
- Coffee shop on site (never got to use it because we were gone during hours of operation)
- option to use the property owners shower (does have a fee and time limit. I also didn't get to use it so I can't comment on the quality)
- option to do laundry (does have a fee. I didn't get to use so I can't comment on the quality)
- close to a main road (also a con...)
- WiFi (the signal wasn't the greatest, but it worked to get messages out to family)
- Price. $60 per night is steep for what the site has to offer. Considering other sites offer better amenities for a fraction of the cost.
- No cell service. Might not be a big deal for some, but we are from out of state to relied on our GPS to get from place to place.
- Unkempt property. There was a random pile of framed artwork in the grass at our site. I almost tripped over them multiple times.
- Very uneven ground. Not ideal for sleeping on.
- Campsites were not clearly marked.
- The port-a-potty is locked with a combination lock. Which is less than ideal if you really need to go, or if you get up in the middle of the night.
- No parking at the campsite. This was the biggest inconvenience because we arrived after dark. You have to go to and from the car for everything you need. We had to park on the side of the road, which was fairly busy. I was very concerned that our car was going to get hit, or I was going to get hit while at the car.
- Potable water is NOT available on-site you have to drive into town to get some.
- Near a main road. Noise/light from traffic on the road during the night was a big issue during our stay.
Again, nothing from the listing was inaccurate. Everything on the listing is what we experienced. It just turns out that we require more from a campsite to be comfortable. In the end, you will have to decide for yourself if the site is right for you.
