Welcome to Clear Creek Getaway! Please note !! Clear creek county Has posted notices on each unit Stating heaters are unsafe so they have been removed for your safety. You can still enter the units NOTE: Absolutely no smoking in the A-frames Please note these Mountains are home to a lot of people therefore I do not allow any open burning wood burning no one want start a forest fire even though the county will say it’s OK for open burn. Please respect The neighbors they request that we do not have open flame. I’m sure you can understand. Bedding: you will need to bring your own For the glam dome: file:///var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments/cd/13/3781DC46-F036-428E-BFC5-447B16E14D54/Image-1.jpeg Roads : This is a mountain getaway so the roads are dirt. If you have Awd and keep your speed up you will make it fine. The road is a loop the backside can have rocks so please drive up in high clearance vehicles no need for crazy lifted just SUV-Trucks type We are available all year round. No power in units. All A-Frames come with a grill and propane (see photos), and there is also a solar motion light on the deck.. Located 10 minutes by car from historic gold town Idaho Springs. River rafting when in season. We also have some of Colorado’s best fly fishing. Awesome hikes nearby (Gray's Peak). We are also close to st Mary’s Glacier, gold mine tours, great small-town restaurants (Marion’s pizza, Beau Joe’s) Hot springs within miles. We have portable toilets located close to the units Great views and there is an old mining cabin at the top if you find it please post your pictures! Georgetown lake 5 miles west I 70 Paddle boarding , train ride through the hills Grays Peak Fourteener 7 miles west I 70 St. Mary’s glacier 2 miles east I70 Hot Springs 2 miles east I70 All mining roads can be used for off-road purposes at your own risk. Be careful, very steep and rocky. ( Please note ) after tremendous amounts of work on the road, it seems 2wd cars cannot make it and this place is not suitable for those campers. Please do not block the road going up or the residence in the mobile home park on the front of the road. When coming from east exit 234 Dumont go left over I 70 to Stanley and then left behind the mobile home.

This particular site is a little ways out from the other tent sites and a-frames, so it feels more private. And there are nice views.

Base camp C-2 car camping
Just a spot to park the car and sit outside but will do the trick when you need quick camping off the I-70!

The property itself is very beautiful with tons of trees, little trails to explore, caves, wildlife, etc. You could properly spend a whole day just exploring the immediate surrounding trails, although some may be private property so be aware of that. Because it's on top of a hill it also has very nice views of the surrounding valley. It's nice, peaceful, and quiet with campsites being sufficiently spaced so that, youre not hearing or seeing your neighbors very much. The camp is located in a nice area with lots of activities to do within a 20 minute drive. We spent 3 days and still felt like we wanted atleast another 2 days to do everything we wanted to do.

Great minus bedding.
Amazing location, incredible view. Bedding in cabin 3 was a little light. We asked for pillows after first night and got pillow cases but no pillows? The a frames themselves were lovely and the grill and deck was superb but the bedding situation left a little to be desired. We would definitely come back but be sure to bring own blankets and bedding. Not ideal if flying in. Idaho springs was awesome and Rick the owner was very responsive and helpful!
