Most people don't camp at 11,000 feet for comfort, but at Richmond Basin, you get the best of both worlds. A tent that can sleep 8 with a wood stove to keep you warm once the sun sets, catered meals delivered right to the tent, and endless trails to wander around no matter what the season. This place has all the comforts of home, and all the views you could ever dream up. Situated in the Richmond Basin next to the famed Imogen Pass, you have easy access to the Richmond Trail and as many saddles and peaks as your heart desires. Nothing beats a warm meal at the end of a day exploring where not many others have. Accessible by high clearance experienced 4x4, or by simply hiking, Richmond Basin Retreat is everything you've ever wanted at 11,000 feet, and more.
How do you put a magical place into words? Almost impossible. You feel like you've stepped into a private piece of heaven at Eric and Susie's beautiful site.
The landscape is stunning: from Mount Hayden looming over you to the left, to the babbling creek that turns into a stumbling waterfall, to the plethora of trails: backcountry roads, scrambling, bouldering, hiking trails, game trails - it's heaven.
And that's before Eric's incredible cooking fills you up morning and night, with Susie's hospitality and kindness in keeping the outfitter's tent spotless while you're out hiking.
We felt like camping royalty being there, and cannot wait to return.
Thank you, Eric and Susie, for a truly memorable weekend.
P.S. For those driving, be sure to pay attention to the 4x4 high-clearance note. It's not a joke. We got up with a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but it's pretty torn up on the bottom. There are shelves that get to be 2-3 feet high that you can't avoid (we tried). Take a good look at your vehicle then compare it to Colorado West Jeep's pictures. We like to push the limits in our vehicles, but we made a mistake on this one for sure. Thanks to Eric for rescuing us :)
After 8 years of living in CO, we felt like we struck gold. Eric and Susie have created a truly magical place. Their hospitality is superb and they left us dying to come back for more. Thanks for creating this haven! We can’t wait to come back!
Absolutely stunning! The view, the cabin and the food we're above and beyond. The drive is beautiful but a tad Rocky so make sure you're equipped with a good 4 wheel drive vehicle. We would.love to being our dogs and friends back to this piece of heaven. Thanks Eric for sharing!!
This place was unbelievable, above and beyond our expectations! Eric was so friendly and accommodating, and even helped us get up the crazy path leading up to the tent. I will say the road to the tent is definitely not for the faint of heart 😂and you will most definitely need 4wd and probably high clearance vehicle (although we made it in a regular dodge ram truck with only a couple scuffs) but probably one of the best experiences of our lives! The view from the tent is something from a dream, it's just such a spectacular place with Eric bringing us warm meals for breakfast and dinner. Everything was perfect!! We will be back!
