A 1950 gas station and surrounding open space converted into a community and performance venue, free bookstore, food bank, and garden called Counterpath (please Google for full info). We're right next to downtown Denver in an urban environment, a neighborhood with many single-family homes and apartments, classic old Colfax Ave. just a block away. The building is a garage but the large outdoor area (flat gravel) is where Hipcampers stay and hosts sculptural work and community events of all kinds. Open year-round, great launch pad for exploring Denver and Colorado's Front Range!

Perfect urban camp
Such a great spot if you want to be in the city and close to anything you may need. Tim was such a great host. He provided 30amps, water fill up, and a dump station was only 10 mins away.
So many great places to eat and shop less than 15mins in any direction. It was a perfect urban camp.
Will stay again!
Comfortable, restful city place.
Tim is a very responsive and helpful host. He communicates clearly and respectfully. We had trouble with our furnace and he contacted a friend that is knowledgeable in these things to try and help us save. The place is clean, quiet, and well maintained and there is a community garden, and community library. If you are coming by don’t forget to bring any extra books you may have around, the community will appreciate it. I would recommend this place.
Felt safe and had fun.
We really enjoyed our two nights at Counterpath, our Denver friends warned us about the neighborhood, but we felt secure there. The chain link fence which locks, was part of it, and it was quiet. Tim was very responsive when we had questions.
Easy access to the parking spot, because we were the only ones stying there, it felt private. I am not sure if we would stay if there were others there, as it is a relatively small area.
Safe spot in residential neighborho
Tim was a great host and we enjoyed our stay very much. We needed to stay in the City and everything was booked. So glad we had this option and we were happy to support the Counterpath mission! This stay is located in a transitional neighborhood but the gravel RV space is along the side of the building behind a high fence with a locked gate so we felt very safe. Our rig is a 39' 5th wheel so we had to back in carefully but once we were in, we had plenty of space for our back patio (toy hauler). We enjoyed some amazing yellow baby tomatoes from Tim's garden. If you're an ice cream fan, make sure to try Nuggs!
The space was great, plenty of room, super simple, water and electric hookups 30A or 110v. Right in Denver, close to places to eat. Safe behind a locked gate. Unique urban experience if you’re looking to stay in close proximity to downtown Denver. Tim was great, friendly and responsive. Would stay again.
Oasis in denver
Counterpath is an oasis in the city. A super cool, safe and secure place to rest and relax. It was quiet all night and I was very impressed with Tim's vision of community. It's a diverse neighborhood, but I enjoy that.
