The vibe at The Queen Elizabeth Mine
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This campsite was awesome! Very private and great views. Our dog loved the chipmunks and squirrels. John was a great host! Very knowledgeable of the area and very hospitable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to get away and have a private experience.
Had a great trip to the top of the Queen Elizabeth Mine Mountain. We took 2 small tents with cots and fit them under the canopy. We got 2 nights of rain and really appreciated that canopy. Know from a flat lander that you have to huff up your gear about 150 feet of mountain stairs. This site is for sure for folks wanting a real mountain camping experience close to town. We were able to deive right down to town to have some Pick Ax Pizza. Highly recommend.
It takes you about 45 minutes to get to Winter Park, 1 hour 30 to Grand Lake and 1 hour 45 to get to the Westside entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park from your camp site.
John was a great host and enjoyed meeting him and his daughter.
Great getaway from the rustle and bustle of the city! Loved the area and the location of the sight. The hosts were super friendly and had a very warm welcome when we arrived. The hike up to the camp wasn't bad at all and totally worth the view! Its also secluded, which makes the experience much more peaceful. Small trails all around the camp site were great to go out and explore and see old mines. Would definitely go back and get away for a day or two! To embrace the mountain air and sounds of nature..
My son and I had a great time tent-camping at the Queen Elizabeth Mine. We were there for two nights. We hiked to the top of the ridge for a beautiful view and hiked the ridge top.
It’s a steep hike from the car to the site. I would recommend bringing a two person tent for the ease/lightness of carrying it. We ended up leaving the cooler in the car and made well planned trips to the car for food and misc. It’s not car camping.
The campsite is well set up with a propane stove that saved our weekend when our stove died. There’s a nice picnic table, camp chairs, a hammock and a big half-shell made out of steel and tarps that we set our tent up inside of. It’s a good second layer against the elements and came in handy a few times. John was a great host and he has set up a wonderful camping spot.
When the camping opportunity presents itself I may camp here again.
