Excellent private meadow to enjoy! Only 3 miles to Cripple Creek (I camped during a fire ban, could not cook, so Cripple Creek made for awesome dinner options!). Road in is clearly marked and easy to navigate. The only downfall, higher elevation makes it a bit cooler at night, but otherwise a great spot.
Sweet spot indeed! Tucked away but close to main roads to get into various towns/areas. So great for passing through. Good amount of space to set up camp. There is a set up fire pit, table and chairs, and old bus and other things in the space; great if you want to make use of it. I personally was wanting more nature than reminder of home “comforts”. Also the noise of surrounding civilization is still present; so not a place if you are wanting dead silence. I was also aware there was someone camped in likely neighboring land .25mi or so away. That said, had a great restful sleep and the night sky is full of those stars out there!!
We loved the site and would absolutely come back. The host was very helpful and responsive to my questions. The site had a few unexpected and appreciated amenities, like a propane grill, a long lead for a dog and a nice little table with chairs. All of this made our visit really great.
It's worth noting that charges will multiply if you plan to have more than 2 guests and 1 car. Our trip for 5 people with 2 cars ended up being more than 3x the advertised rate of $33 a night!! I did not see anything about these additional fees before booking, but this was my first time using hipcamp. Be warned.
Aside from the seemingly hidden fees, I would definitely return.
Serene, easy to get to
As veteran backpackers whose backs now prefer thicker mattresses, the ability to car camp in a place with gorgeous views and a well-built fire pit was a luxury! As long as we look only in three directions, it felt relatively remote. On a remoteness scale of 1 being a crowded campground and 10 being a trail on an uninhabited Alaska island, this is a 4 or 5. The upside is the ease: Erica provided perfect directions and for $5, the five gallons of water needed to quench a fire. The downside is that many people who own acres of land off the beaten path is they like noisy activities like shooting and four-wheeling. We heard both from neighbors in the valley. The campers at the other site on the property didn't bother us at all--we heard their car door slam but no voices. Occasionally, depending on the atmosphere, highway noise made its way to us as well. So weigh the benefits (including the reasonable price and beautiful site) against the fact that you're not in true solitude, if that's your thing. If you're used to campgrounds, this is a thousand steps up from that and you'll have a lovely time!
Quiet spot. A couple good relative flat spots. Nice view. "into the wild" school bus was a bit of a surprise being so close to where you actually camp. Be more serene and "mountain getaway" without that and some of the other old decking, shed and other items scattered about. Easy to get to.
