A Rocky Mountain Glamping Experience! 

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 Bliss 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 for an 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 (not available once we have freezing night temperatures). 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--4 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. 

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 National Park 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!

FYI:  There is road noise in the daytime .  Just walk down to the creek to cancel it out with nature sounds. (quiet at night)

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.

I recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a spiritual escape into the woods of Colorado! My boyfriend and I awoke in the morning to the sunshine beaming into our wagon, we read on the futon in the tent, swam in, mediated by, and were lulled to sleep by the river! Byron and Dot are the most welcoming and opened hearted people I have ever met and made me and my boyfriend feel so unbelievably welcome and comfortable! We will carry this sacred space with us forever and will definitely be visiting again as soon as we can!

Gabi, it was such a delight hosting both of you in BLISS Camp. Dot and I totally loved your energies. Thank you so much for your insights of who I am, realizing quickly that I must have a strong, heartfelt connection to Baba Ram Das and asking to hear my stories of my time with Ram Das. Please always remember you can Be Here Now, Bliss Camp is only a glimpse into your ♥️ away,

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The gypsy wagons and the kitchen are even more beautiful in person. While we spent most of our time in RMNP, this was the perfect place to come back to for an evening meal and some rejuvenating shuteye. Highly recommend for maximizing your time in nature without giving up the homey comforts of a great kitchen and a comfy bed.

Bliss Camp is a hidden gem in the Boulder, Colorado area. The location is amazing in Lyons, Colorado which is about 25 minutes to Boulder or 25 minutes to Estes Park. The wagon we stayed in(Sapphira) was the cutest gypsy wagon with additional use of an outdoor semi-enclosed kitchen, which had the necessities you would need, an outdoor shower, and camp fire area. The peaceful setting is relaxing and the hiking trails are amazing. Dot and Byron are great to work with. They were very quick to respond to my emails as well as helping get set up when we arrived. They made special accommodations for our motorhome too that we really appreciated. If you are looking for a spot near Boulder, I would highly recommend staying at Bliss Camp. Can't wait to come back!
