Pitch a tent or bring a small self-contained camper and enjoy privacy on the side of a mountain. This site is private and a 7 minute drive to Cripple Creek where many tourist attractions await. Mining tours, gold panning, gaming and gambling, restaurants, railroad tours and more! This site is a quick drive from several popular hikes and Mueller State Park and Dome Rock Park. There's a wolf sanctuary in the area and it's about 40 minutes from the Fossil Beds in Florissant. A natural spring that is 2 and 1/2 miles away provides a convenience source for hauling in water. This property is appropriate only for small campers or pop-ups due to the mountainous terrain. You should expect to go down a steep graded hill. This site is a 420 friendly.

The vibe at Sweet Ass Meadow @ Serendipty Slope

Excellent private meadow to enjoy! Only 3 miles to Cripple Creek (I camped during a fire ban, could not cook, so Cripple Creek made for awesome dinner options!). Road in is clearly marked and easy to navigate. The only downfall, higher elevation makes it a bit cooler at night, but otherwise a great spot.
Quiet spot. A couple good relative flat spots. Nice view. "into the wild" school bus was a bit of a surprise being so close to where you actually camp. Be more serene and "mountain getaway" without that and some of the other old decking, shed and other items scattered about. Easy to get to.
Sweet spot indeed! Tucked away but close to main roads to get into various towns/areas. So great for passing through. Good amount of space to set up camp. There is a set up fire pit, table and chairs, and old bus and other things in the space; great if you want to make use of it. I personally was wanting more nature than reminder of home “comforts”. Also the noise of surrounding civilization is still present; so not a place if you are wanting dead silence. I was also aware there was someone camped in likely neighboring land .25mi or so away. That said, had a great restful sleep and the night sky is full of those stars out there!!
We had a great time on the SAM site over Labor Day weekend. The site was not as primitive as I had hoped. There was a permanent neighbor living up the hill who was running a generator at night and had a barking dog. Their site was not that close though, so it was only a minor annoyance. Next time I think we will stay at Brown Dog's Lookout. It's more secluded and the lookout is absolutely amazing.
