A Rocky Mountain Glamping Experience! 

Welcome to Bliss Canyon!  Enjoy our private mountain getaway in one of two unique, classy, handcrafted Gypsy Wagon Campers, The Shimza and the Sapphira. Towering rock outcroppings surround you in our private canyon, the stream lulls you to sleep, the birds serenade you in the morning. Bliss Pond or the Heart Pool will tempt you with a bracing dip in crystal clear waters. Explore the surrounding national forest or kick back and try some fishing or simply relaxing in camp.

The Sapphira is 7’ x 10’ with Dutch door, full-size bed with all bedding provided, and lots of storage cubbies . Solar electricity provides power for lights and your devices. There is room under the bed to sleep 1 on a mattress, again bedding provided, or your dog (please bring your own dog bed). Please check with host.  There is an adjacent 10' x 10' screen tent with a futon style couch for extra living space. The couch converts to a full-size bed to sleep 2 more guests. (More than 2 guests total incurs extra fee.)  Let us know if you have your own sleeping bags, or if extra bedding is needed. Sapphira is designed and built by Dot and Byron's company, SimBLISSity Tiny Homes, a premiere Tiny Home builder.

Relax in your private backyard or head over to the shared outdoor kitchen for your personal meal prep. After your day of adventure or kicking back, enjoy a hot shower. Share your revelations of the day around the campfire, roast marshmallows, or relish your favorite beverage or 4:20 treat (outdoors only please).

Kitchen has sink, fresh, potable water, kitchenware—pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc--2 burner propane stove, critter-resistant food safe, bear-proof trash can, and picnic tables outside. We provide a convenient propane campfire for safety since our climate is dry and often windy. No candles please!

There are easy trails on property along the lush stream (the original riverbed of the Middle Saint Vrain Stream), fishing or swimming in the pond (no lifeguard on duty), or challenging trails into Roosevelt National Forest from the property. (Ask Dot for guidance.) Several NF access points, where you can enjoy peaceful walks away from crowds, are a short drive.

Bliss Canyon is a spur off of breathtaking South Saint Vrain Canyon. Stroll on over to the South or Middle for renowned fly-fishing. For climbers, there are over 50 noted climbs in the South Saint Vrain Canyon. 

Rocky Mountain National Park, one of the five Crown Jewels of the National Park Service, is nearby. The closest trailhead in RMNP is 10 miles, the next trailhead at Wild Basin park entrance is 13 miles, and the Beaver Meadows entrance (main entrance) is 36 miles. Rocky Mountain National Park has breathtaking drives, easy strolls with interpretive signs, and 360 miles of trails. (Advance reservation required for entry 9:00 am to 3:00 pm for most of park; 5:00 am to 6:00 pm for Bear Lake Road Corridor.)

Indian Peaks Wilderness also has several nearby access points and trailheads and abundant Moose sightings. Ask for details.

Let the world melt away, it will still exist when you return; there is no wifi or cell service. In the event of urgent need, come to our home up the hill and ring the bell.

The charming town of Lyons is 20 minutes away with coffee shops, restaurants,  bars, library with free wifi, and many quaint shops. Estes Park is 35 minutes with more services.

Dot & Byron look forward to hosting you in our beautiful Rocky Mountain Paradise!

My friends and I rented out both of Dot and Byron's wagons for a weekend with 4 young kids and it was the perfect, easy glamping excursion for us. The kids had a blast running around the surrounding paths, splashing in the creek and roasting marshmallows before bed. The adults appreciated the well-stocked outdoor kitchen, the spotlessly clean wagons, and the thoughtfulness that went into every detail and amenity. It made it so easy to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We stayed in the Sapphira wagon with a 2-year-old and were able to fit our travel crib partially under the upper bed, which was perfect.

We had a such a lovely time at Dot and Byron's! The wagon and amenities were comfortable and so nice to hang around and cook and be on their beautiful property. Dot was full of recommendations of hikes and ways to enjoy the area. We would highly recommend staying here for a nice getaway.

If this wonderful spot is available - book it! Dot and Byron have created the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. While you get to enjoy the sound of the river and the wooded area, you also get to enjoy a comfy bed, a kitchen with everything you really need, and a hot shower!! Dot and Byron are great hosts - responsive and helpful but also super respectful of your privacy. We enjoyed a music festival in Boulder and the drive from Boulder to the property was an easy and beautiful drive. Can't recommend it highly enough. Enjoy!

This place is magic! The waterfalls, trails and rock formations that surround you are gift enough, and then there are the endless amenities that make everything so easy. We spent time in both Lyons and RMNP which are easy drives, and evenings by the campfire were so relaxing. Slept amazing on the comfy beds and felt so grateful to our hosts for carving out a potion of their beautiful property to share with others. Already can’t wait to return. We’ve stayed in several Hipcamps and this is our favorite so far, by a mile.

Staying here was a downright lovely experience. All the amenities advertised plus some extras, with lots of little touches that made everything more pleasant. You could really sense the care that the owners put into all the details.

Bliss Camp was a fantastic and unique stay! We went with a group of 6 (3 couples) and it was perfect. I highly recommend going with a group and renting out both wagons; we had the entire campsite to ourselves. Dot and Byron are fantastic hosts and they truly thought of everything, making this a one-of-a-kind glamping experience. We will definitely be coming back.
