The property is about 2 hours from Denver and only an hour from Colorado Springs . 952 Guipago Trail Hartsel CO 80449 is the address you will put into Google Maps to get you to the property. There is a slight slope to our 5 acre grassland property although the campsite is fairly level for Rv's, Pop-ups or tents. The site offers ample room for parking, a firepit area with propane firepit, a brick pizza oven, a small deck, a propane grill and large picnic table with two benches. Feel free to run your generator without disturbing anyone. Great cell service there as well. We usually bring a pop up canopy for extra shade or just use the awning from the RV. The wind comes and goes here frequently and the weather can be unpredictable so make sure your staking down your stuff. The property is close to 3 reservoirs and there is plenty of space to park boats or other toys while you camp. Please keep all pets close or on a leash so as not to disturb nearby neighbors. We are about 10 minutes from Hartsel or 25 minutes from Fairplay. Should you need any supplies or just need a dump station for the RV. I recommend the Western Inn Motel and RV Park for your dumping needs. We stop here before going to the property to fill up our water tank and before going back home to empty the tanks. It's cheap and quick, bring cash as that is all they accept for these services. About $10 to empty tanks. The area here is big and wide open with beautiful views. You can see every star in the sky from there. A truly great place to get away for a few days!

Kristopher was the most attentive and responsive compared to other hosts we have had. His property was well maintained, peaceful, with a great view. Directions can be tricky so be sure to get details from the host before leaving home. I suggest turn by turn directions to avoid confusion, inconsistency, and intermittent satellite connection using GPS.

Kristopher’s site was great and just what we expected. Because of the fire ban, there was a propane fire pit provided, which was a really nice touch since camping just doesn’t feel right without a fire. There is also a grill, which we didn’t end up using. It was nice to have lots of open space for our dogs to roam without bothering anyone. We would come back with a larger group next time because the space is big and lends itself well to group camping. Kristopher was a great host, super responsive, and very detailed with directions and helpful info.

Such a cute and isolated spot to camp! The views were spectacular! We booked the site on the windiest weekend ever so when we arrived, the grill had been busted up by the wind and was knocked over. We couldn’t get it working at all that weekend which was a bummer but it’s no ones fault it’s windy. Follow Kris’ directions and you’ll find the spot with no problems. Don’t attempt this drive without an all wheel drive vehicle that’s higher off the ground; there are trenches to drive over that even my Subaru probably couldn’t have managed. We took our Jeep and were fine, though. Beware the only gas station in the area in Hartsel does not require their customers to wear masks. Multiple maskless people were in and out of this place. It’s worth it to get gas in Johnson Village where the people are respectful and wear masks. Be prepared to bring everything you need to this campsite and pack it all out when you leave. It was windy and cold, but the star gazing was worth it. Thanks Kris!

Thanks again for booking with us Brenda! The wind does get bad out there at times. I'll be out there soon to repair or replace the grill and make sure it is better secured for future use. I'll be sure to add the information about the trenches to the listing description. These are fairly new additions to the road. Hartsel is really small, we usually drive an extra 15 minutes to Fairplay for all of our needs. Thanks again and hope you'll book with us again in the future!
