Mountain Meadow Glamp Camp

1 site · Lodging160 acres · Alma, CO
Campgrounds, people, noises, regulations, things you won't find here. You will find happiness, peace, the sound of the winds in 3000 year old trees, alpine streams tricking through ancient untouched forests, great horned owls and moose calling into the night, coyote echoing at sunset signaling night approaching, the warm smell of pine and summer grasses, touching the warm rocks next to the stream while you listen to the birds and crickets. I could go on and on, these are the things I see when I close my eyes and think of this place. This site sits at the base of (2) 14ers. in thee middle of a sunken meadow. This is the most beautiful and secluded camping experience you will experience in Colorado. There are miles of 4x4 and atv trails. There are countless hiking trails for day and short nature hikes. Above the site sits bristlecone pines that have appeared in ansel adams prints and are absolutely amazing. The sites sit on 160 private acres which borders national forest. There is a small a-frame tent that's insulated with big windows, locking door, skylight, solar for charging electronics, and a full size bed. The cabin is roughly the size of the full size mattress but seems bigger because of the a-frame roof. Its warm and cozy and keeps the critters and animals out, so you feel safe and comfortable. There are lots of amenities on site.  There is a picnic table, 10'x12' waterproof awning and wood deck.  There is a bbq, bear box, huge stone fire pit and bucket toilet. The road into the site was graded last year but still has small potholes typical of a Colorado county road, most low-profile cars will do fine.  If you have a rv or camper, the turn around is limited, no tow behind campers or vehicles over 20'

A-frames near Silverthorne with fishing guide

Overview

Serving as the heart of Summit County, Silverthorne is a bustling hub offering familiar stores and restaurants, all within easy reach of Colorado’s popular ski areas like Frisco, Vail, and Breckenridge. The surrounding Rocky Mountain peaks rise above the horizon, and the waters of Dillon Reservoir beckon, offering boating, paddling, and fishing in the summer. Or, chase the waters of the Blue River, which runs roughly along Highway 9, up into the hills to enjoy action-packed paddling and Gold Medal fishing. Very few private RV parks are found in the region, but a number of public campgrounds dot the national forests and line the shores of Dillon Reservoir. While most offer dry camping, Lowry Campground and Heaton Bay Campground have partial hookups.

Where to go

White River National Forest

Several iconic Colorado natural wonders are found in the White River National Forest, including the Maroon Bells, Hanging Lake, and 10 fourteeners. Over two million acres of woodlands cover the Rocky Mountain Peaks west of Silverthorne. Dispersed camping, tent and RV sites, and cabins are also found in the forest. The 50 forest service campgrounds mostly offer off-grid, dry camping, with a handful providing electric hookups and drinking water. Some are first-come, first serve, while others allow reservations.

Arapaho National Forest

Between Silverthorne and Denver, the Arapaho National Forest covers 1.5 million acres straddling I-70. Traverse the highest paved road in the United States with a drive along the Mount Evans Scenic Byway, which reaches heights over 14,000 feet in elevation. Take your pick from over 50 forest service campgrounds. There are myriad tent camping sites, while RV sites are more limited. Dispersed camping can also be found in designated areas.

Rocky Mountain National Park

North of Silverthorne, the towns of Granby and Grand Lake serve as base camps for the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Several private RV parks offer resort-level amenities, including free wifi, pools, horseback riding, and hot tubs. Or, venture into the park to find National Park Service campgrounds. While RV camping is allowed, hookups are not available. The views are unbeatable, however, as well as the access to the bounty of outdoor activities.

When to go

Silverthorne bursts with activity throughout the year, though campers may find the most predictable weather in the summer months of July and August, when daytime temperatures are pleasant and nights are somewhat brisk. Spring and fall can be tricky at 9,000 feet in elevation, as cooler weather and occasional snows are common. Winter sports thrive across the region, but the freezing temperatures and frequent snowfalls are better for skiers than for campers. That doesn’t mean all campgrounds are closed, as some offer year-round services for adventurous travelers.
