This campsite is right off Highway 24 and is only a few miles/minutes from the town of Hartsel. Gorgeous mountain views and sunsets will make this a site you will never forget. With world-class fishing, hiking, and even gravel biking. The sunsets here are like no other. Only 20 mins from Fairplay and is only a little over an hour from Colorado Springs. Please make sure to check the fire ban status in Park County before deciding to camp as it can get gusty.

There are no trees on the lot and the driveway is just dirt but shouldn't be a problem since my Audi S5 can make it, lol. Check out the image of the property layout so you know where your assigned spot is. Also, refer to this image as there are a couple hazards on the property.If tent camping:

Make sure to bring warms cloths for the evenings and have a warm place to sleep if car/tent camping. Other than bringing bug spray as with any camping trip, have fun and safe camping!

Even though it says only one car per site, if you want more than just two people you can pay the additional fee and have up to two cars and four people per site.

Absolutely amazing place to stay! Close to the highway and easy to find which was perfect for us since we were just stopping on our way through for a night. The land itself is a stunning meadow filled with wildflowers. It's the perfect place for star gazing with very little light pollution from nearby towns. We were able to get the best picture of the milky way that we have ever taken! Host is very friendly as well.
