The Straus Mountain campsite provided an oasis with stunning views. The drive to the campsite is serene and peaceful. The amenities allow you to glamp while still staying faithful to the traditional camping experience. It's a great place to retreat to with your loved ones or friends. I would highly recommend.

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Straus Mountain-WOW. I had a good feeling we would enjoy ourselves given the reviews for the listing, but the reality even exceeded my expectations. For starters, Sarah and Darren seem like great people and clearly take pride in what they are offering. Communication whenever we had questions was nearly instant; although we didn't have many questions because nearly everything you need to know about anything is outlined in a binder on-site (they also email a PDF version prior to your stay). They also had fresh flowers, mint, and delicious homemade peanut butter cups waiting for us, awesome!

The space itself is perfect. The outdoor kitchen came in clutch during a state-wide fire ban, and is outfitted with all of the utensils, cleaning supplies, etc. that you might need (appliances include fridge/freezer, stove, grill, microwave). They had 3 hammocks set up for us upon arrival which we took advantage of.

Needless to say, we had the perfect stress-free stay and are planning on coming back in the future. Do yourself a favor and book this spot!

FYI-we were able to drive a Toyota Corolla to and from the campsite multiple times during our journey without any issues really-just had to get a little speed going up the hill when we were packed down leaving the spot.

This was only my second experience with Hipcamp. This short stay was glorious. An hour and 20 min from metro Denver. Kitchen amenities like Airbnb In an outdoor space. Hosts are very responsive with email and clearly take pride in sharing a wonderful location with guests. Can’t wait to return.

We hiked In Reynolds Park, had picnick lunch at Pine Valley Ranch Park by the rushing N Platte River. Whatever you might need is in Conifer or Evergreen.

Love the pre-positioned hammocksNice sunset after a brief rain showerBright moon through the treesSarah puts on the greatest little welcoming touches!

The beauty of nature + the convenience of a kitchen. So clutch, especially with frequent fire bans.

Such a unique camping spot!

Communication from host was awesome! The written instructions about the camp were thorough and explained everything about camp. The site itself was beautiful and well kept. Everything was thought of! And even though we were not that far from city site felt very secluded. So much so that when my friend came out of outhouse she saw a bear! It put a bit of scare in some members of the party but host had provided bear spray! After all it is nature and host had mentioned it is bear country. Bear ran off without incident. Highly recommend site!

This is definitely a mountain site but for the most part we had cell reception! The kitchen was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was actually very nice! Hammocks already hung up! Private but with the kitchen area, not too primitive!

The perfect peaceful retreat! My husband and I tent camped for three nights, and it was wonderful. The kitchen has everything you need, and makes cooking while camping a breeze. We enjoyed our time up at Straus Mountain! I would recommend this campsite to everyone.

Darren and Sarah are super kind and very good at communicating. Their info packet that was sent to us after booking was very thorough and informative.

How could you not love this place? It is truly special. You can tell from the long list of amenities and thoughtful touches that Sarah and Darren have poured their hearts into this place. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed and MUCH more, the picnic table was the perfect gathering spot, the views were rad and even the outhouse was adorable. I’d stay here again and again.
