About Peak-to-peak pit stop
Pitch your tent in a secluded forest next to a stream with a small waterfall.
The camping site is secluded and well shaded. There is a lovely stream with a small waterfall that flows past the camp site. Nearby, there are a couple of abandoned cabins and a mine left over from Rollinsville's past. The nearby town of Nederland offers plenty of tourist activities and grocery store. A little further north is Rocky Mountain National Park. All around are numerous hiking opportunities, including here at the camp since we border the Roosevelt National Forest. The Peak-to-Peak highway which passes b, wanders its way through the Rocky Mountain front range and is a beautiful drive.

The vibe at Peak-to-peak pit stop

Beautiful, private campsite and friendly host. The only thing I would change is to create a flat tent spot - there isn't a great one. We got to meet a family from the Netherlands who was renting out another area on the property. Fun! If you stay here, I'd definitely recommend going to Brainard Lake Recreational Area (45 min drive from campsite) for amazing mountain views and hikes. Exploring Nederland, the nearby town was also fun.
A great secluded campsite! Take a dirt road to Soloman's house, and then hike over a bridge, into the woods (about 300 ft or so) to a cleared camping area with a stream running next to it with a small waterfall. There's also a short hiking trail behind the campsite, where you will see an abandoned old cabin and more small waterfalls. If you drive past the house, there is an off-roading trail for 4 wheeled vehicles. (Some clearance is recommended on the car, it's a strenuous looking off-roading trail.) It's only a short drive to Golden Gate Canyon State Park, where there's lots of hiking trails. No bathrooms at this site--so you either go in the woods (or you can also take a short drive to the state park!) As stated in another review, there is only enough flat space for about one tent, but you can setup more as long as you don't mind sliding down the hill a little bit!) :-) Soloman provided us with a bucket to put out any campfires, and I believe there was a pile of firewood for our use as well (but we didn't make any campfires this time around.) Our stay was in July, and it did get cold at night, so be sure to bring a warm sleeping bag and blankets. We didn't see much wildlife, but I would recommend being careful with your food and trash, as the state park mentioned bears & other wildlife were in the area.
Beautiful, private little campsite that is just far enough in to the woods to feel remote but close enough that it isn't a hassle to walk your gear in! Great pre-made fire ring that we enjoyed as the nights get much cooler, and even has a babbling brook running along side it for some lovely white noise to fall asleep to. The grounds have wonderful shade from tall trees, a little path to explore that leads to a blocked mine and cabin ruins, and we even saw some foxes! We really enjoyed heading up to Ned for breakfast and hiking around lake Brainard for the day. Love this camp, would def come back.
This site was the perfect stop between our late flight into Denver and the rest of our trip. It's a short walk from where you park and the stream is wonderful to fall asleep to. Despite a nice stay, we never got a chance to meet or talk to Solomon.
A remote spot...just what I had hoped for.
I'm reasonably certain it was just kids playing, from the home cabin, but it was close enough that I could hear it from the camping spot...it sounded eirie...didn't last long though.
A deer stopped to get a drink in the peaceful small creek, no more than ten yards away.
