The tent platforms were easy to get to and spaced far enough apart for privacy and generally a nice break from setting up a tent on a gravel pad. WiFi was stable throughout my visit and I was able to get some work done before heading home."

Purgatory Riverbottoms

8 sites · Tents5 acres · Trinidad, Las Animas
If camsites are full, contact me. There is tons of space. Upon arrival, come straight down Cottonwood Avenue past the private signs where the asphalt ends and straight to the Teepee. We are on a Peninsula with the river on one side and an irrigation creek down the other. We own 1/4 stretch along the river across from the riverwalk and downtown. The "Trinidad" lights shine down from atop Simpsons Rest which is a public area. It has an incredible view of Trinidad ans hidden caves and areas to explore as well. The area we own is Picketwire Valley. It was renamed Picketwire because the French couldn't pronounce Purgatory. The French retreated to Simpsons Rest are were surrounded by Indians and were starved etc. The large caves they hid in, have since covered over.

Sage View Ranch

24 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents11 acres · Paonia, Delta
After traveling the US in our motorhome for almost 5 years my husband Scott and I know the value of a smiling face and a helping hand after a day (or week) of travel. Exploring and experiencing this amazing country, its diversity and incredible people enhanced our lives in so many ways. In mid 2017 we found out our first grandchild was on the way. Long story short we parked the RV and parked ourselves here in Paonia, CO. In December of that year, we moved onto this amazing property full time and started the long list of fix ups (the list is still long). lol We are blessed to have our two adult sons and (aforementioned) grandson living on this property with us. Our philosophy is to live in the moment as the present is the gift. Whether enjoying a sunrise or a sunset or anytime in between you’ll likely find us outside most days. In that, we love all that nature has to offer including fresh fruits and veggies, animals, beauty and fragrances. Sage View Ranch is being created with the desire to have people experience the natural rustic beauty and magic of Paonia. Scott and I look forward to meeting you :)

Lovely Vega Lake View

10 sites · RVs, Tents25 acres · Collbran, Mesa
Built in the 1960's this place has a lot of history, but has been kept a secret from many!  We have been told that the locals wanted to keep it for themselves so they didn't tell anyone about it.  But, we think you deserve a chance to come and check it out.  If you love hiking, biking, water sports, fishing, OHV, snowmobiles, and just outdoors in general you will love this place!  This is a remote location, the nearest town is 20 minutes away.  The nearest big box store is a little over an hour.  There is no cell phone service, except in a couple locations.  It is a true getaway.  We see families reconnect here, life long friendships are made here, and kids actually put down their devices and get dirty!!

River, stream, or creek camping near Cripple Creek with fishing guide

In the 1800s, Cripple Creek was one of Colorado’s bustling gold mining towns. Today, you can capture that wild gold-rush spirit with a camping adventure in the hills around town. Or, head deeper into the Rockies and sleep in the shadow of Pikes Peak. RV parks, rustic cabins, or backcountry tent sites—the area near Cripple Creek has it all.

Explore meadows and climb massive rocks in Mueller State Park. Relax in camp with views of the Continental Divide, or book cabins overlooking Pikes Peak. If you’re ready for a challenge, tackle 36 miles of mountain biking trails. The winter snows set the scene for wild, ungroomed Nordic skiing.

In the Pike National Forest, it’s easy to disconnect—cell and Wi-Fi service is limited. Hike the Devil’s Playground Trail from your site at The Crags. As you drive toward Colorado Springs, find tent camping at Meadow Ridge and Rampart Reservoir. For easy access to the Garden of the Gods, look for RV resorts in Manitou Springs.

Most of the campgrounds near Cripple Creek close in the winter. To enjoy the snow, rent a 4WD vehicle and book a cabin or a yurt. The rest of the year, temperatures are mild. Pack a warm jacket, even in the summer; evenings are cool year-round.

Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
