Come and visit our slice of heaven in the majestic Colorado Rockies within the Pikes Peak National Forest. Only 60 minutes outside of Colorado Springs, you can spend time letting your dream of being in the high country come to life! Guests have use of our completely stocked, beautiful outdoor kitchen with grill and griddle, single and double camp stoves, all pots/pans, plates, cups, prep bowls, knives, cutting boards and utensils are available to our guests...you really only need to bring the food you plan on cooking! Relax and enjoy the custom Adirondack chairs around 12 seat fire pit (or have your personal fire pit experience on our 2 person deck)....this is GLAMPING at it's best!!  All of our cabins have comfy sleeping accommodations...you only need to bring your pillow and sleeping bag!  A-frames are set up with a solar light, 5 gallon igloos of fresh spring water, Indian blankets and deck chairs. If you need any additional camping equipment like single burner stoves, sleeping gear, camp heaters, etc., they are available under extras for a small fee. RHIZE (named because the aspen trees are in the RHIZOME family and we have 43 acres of the most incredible aspen grove in Colorado) is truly a slice of heaven.  If you are coming in the fall, there is no better viewing spot than RHIZE MOUNTAIN RETREAT. RHIZE is surrounded by BLM with unlimited hiking on our 43 acre paradise with many options and difficulty levels from easy strolls to miles of more challenging hiking within 5 minutes. Views of Pring Reservoir and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range make every spot truly magical!! The charming mining towns of Victor and Cripple Creek are a short drive (10 minutes) with access to groceries, dining, entertainment, gold and silver mine tours, as well as festivals throughout the season. For those that want to be away from any hustle and bustle, RHIZE is the place for you! You can relax on your private deck, play corn hole, build a fire, read a book in your comfy cabin, take a nap in our hammock hangout in the trees, pick wild flowers, do yoga (private classes available for a small fee), enjoy a bottle of wine as the sun sets behind the mountains and wake to the sound of the many birds and wildlife on the land! There is no shortage of hiking, biking, fishing at the Skagway Reservoir or Eleven Mile Canyon, rock climbing, white water rafting within an hour, ATVing...pretty much any Colorado experience is within reach from this location. Please note a high clearance vehicle with all wheel drive or 4x4 is recommended as the last 2 miles are on unmaintained roads.  We are looking forward to helping you create memories that will last a lifetime. Feel free to let us know about any special requests or needs that would make your trip perfectly perfect!! One other note: we don't have cell service when we are on property so if you are reaching out from Friday-Sunday, we will get back to you when we get back to Colorado Springs (usually Monday).

We absolutely loved this whole experience! Everything was so thoughtfully planned out, and our hosts were absolutely amazing, going above and beyond to help us out. It's so beautiful on the site, and we got to properly disconnect and relax. We were especially grateful to have the propane heater and wood-fire stove (not in every A-frame, but in ours) to keep us warm on a very chilly night.

Our stay at Misty's RHIZE Mountain was so much more than I expected. The views were beautiful, the people we met were great. The elk were magical! Misty and Ron were super great hosts. They made our weekend getaway perfect. I will be back for sure!

The most incredible thing happened up here, all 3 of my kids (ages 14, 10, and 4) had fun and were in good moods pretty much the whole trip. We spent 3 days up at Rize and it was lots of fun for everyone. My kids, especially my teenager, aren’t always the best at traveling but this was a winner with them. Would definitely recommend.

Tranquil getaway escape
Perfect place to unwind. The communal outdoor kitchen and fire pit area are a wonderful way to connect with the environment and other campers. The A-frame cabins are adorable and thoughtfully designed. Majestic views and serene surroundings. Our favorite camping site!

Whimsical Mountain Retreat
The area is whimsically relaxing and we would absolutely visit again Misty's directions were exactly on point and her description of the campsite/structures were absolutely accurate. . My boyfriend and I enjoyed our large cups of coffee on the beautiful Adirondack bench swing at the entrance of the property, it was a glorious way to start our morning. Thank you for being such a tremendous and warm host!

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER
We had such an incredible time at Rhize! Misty and her husband are such kind hosts. They really care about their campers and they went over and above to make sure we had a wonderful time. They really made our trip the most memorable. We’ve never stayed In a place with hosts like this with such a heart for hospitality and we cannot wait to go back! I loved that they have the option for breakfasts it was amazing (Misty makes a mean pancake) I didn’t have to worry about bringing as many meals and being able to utilize her outdoor kitchen which is absolutely adorable and equipped with everything made our stay so much more enjoyable! We got to focus on going hiking and spending time together! Our dogs had such a fantastic time as we were able to keep them off leash not to mention our A-frame cabin was absolutely the cutest and the most cozy and our view was absolutely incredible!

Beautiful Get-Away
Rhize Mountain Retreat is definitely a retreat! For two solid days we were off grid and enjoyed much needed family time before our daughter goes off to college next month. Misty and Ron are such accommodating hosts! The R-pod was a perfect compromise for this family of three where one hates tent camping and the other two love it. The camper had two separate beds and a small kitchen. Misty asked if there was anything I needed to send her a note. She had everything ready: frying pan/lid, spatula, 5 gallon water jug, and a small trash can. The camp site had a table, chairs, and umbrella where we enjoyed eating meals and playing games. Ron assembled an "outside room" that was quite handy because it rained every afternoon/evening we were there. There were even flowers on the counter. Note: there is a little bathroom in the R-pod to do #1, but why? There is a "gorgeous" outhouse like none other I've seen! The property is so clean and has such beautiful views! Misty and Ron offer pizzas and pancakes but we did not partake. However... The outdoor kitchen had everything we needed to cook (we did so one night). They have truly thought of everything. They are friendly and eager to share. My family highly recommends Rhize Mountain Retreat - you won't be disappointed.

This one of the best glamping trips we have ever experienced. The small A frame we stayed in was crafted well and felt very homey and cozy. Our hosts were more than gracious and they welcomed our large dogs with much kindness. We will definitely be looking forward to coming back after this experience!

Peaceful & welcoming camp site
Misty & Ron are wonderful, attentive hosts and have curated beautiful camping options in a stunning aspen grove. The Blue Jay A frame was cozy, and the perfect size for me and my dog. Regrettably we left a day early, as it had been a while since my dog had been camping and he became quite anxious over the course of our stay (he’s just a sensitive rescue, this happens sometimes and has nothing to do with the camp site) — Misty & Ron were incredibly understanding and sweet, and we will definitely return in the future! While the site is stunning during the summer with many wildflowers, I imagine it must be incredible in the fall with all the aspen trees. Don’t miss out on this beautiful location, cozy cabins, and kind hosts!

Great Family Camping Experience!
We highly recommend camping at Misty & Ron’s campground! They are the most friendly and accommodating hosts and you can tell that they’ve thought of every detail to make your camping experience there an enjoyable one. We rented the R-pod for 2 nights for our first time camping with our 5 & 3yr old kids and it was perfect for what we needed. The location of the R-pod has a wonderful view to enjoy with your own little table and chair setup! The outdoor kitchen is also a great feature of the property! We paid to have the pancake breakfast and the wood fire pizza dinner- you have to do both! The kids got to make their own pizzas and loved the experience! Almost as much as they loved finding kindling for the wood burning oven. The pizzas were all absolutely delicious! As a parent camping with young kids, I will also add that the outhouse on the properly is the most clean and non-scary experience you could hope for when introducing your kids to going potty without plumbing. And it has a great view! Thanks so much to Misty and Ron for providing us with a memorable experience for our first family camping adventure!

This was our first Hipcamp and wow did that set a high standard. The host were gracious and friendly. The property is absolutely beautiful. Right in the middle of a majestic Aspen grove. The view from our little A frame can't be beat. Dinner was delicious. Definitely will be returning.

Such a fun and unique experience!
My family of 4 had the absolute best time at Rhize Mountain Retreat...they even allowed our little pup to run around off-leash! We rented out the adjoining Hawk and Blue Jay A-frames and it was perfect. I loved all the attention to detail both - esthetic and practical. The property is a rare gem and Misty and Ron are the hosts with the most. We enjoyed the pancake breakfast so much, as well as the trails around the area. Just the best time! We will be back!

Ideal setting to unwind and relax
My husband, young son and I had the best weekend here recently at Misty’s retreat. We were so happy to see this beautiful spot in the mountain top and enjoy it for two nights. Our sweet little A Frame cabin was perfect and suited the three of us well. It had a wood burning stove which was so nice in the chilly evenings. It felt like camping but on a softer surface- good for our older backs! We rented a propane fire place with a propane tank for a perfect evening fire one night. We played Uno and enjoyed the fresh mountain air and stunning scenery all around us. We even had some fun animal sounds like Elk bug in and coyotes howling the first night. The outdoor kitchen set up they have is wonderful, we used the flat top griddle and regular grill throughout our stay. I highly recommend the pizza dinner on Friday night and the pancake breakfast too. We felt well cared for in such a stunning environment. You can read a book in one of many hammocks,, chat with new friends and guests around the fire pit or explore and hike. Truly a magical time and we’re planning when we can go back with friends next year!

Rejuvenate at Colorado altitude
Beautiful land, great hosts, wonderful sites. Hiking across their 40+ acres, plenty of room to explore and to gather or isolate. The spaces work for solo, family or group trips. The outdoor kitchen makes life easy, and the after-dinner firepit is perfect as the sun sets and the night chills. We've been twice, now, and expect to be back.

We had a WONDERFUL but brief stay with Misty at her incredible little hideaway. We had to drag ourselves away to continue our road trip, otherwise we might've never left! Misty and her husband were amazing hosts, the campsite is super cool and thought through the last detail, and the pizza is a MUST. We can't wait to find a way back there one day :)

Wonderful stay!
Rhize mountain is a BEAUTIFUL place to stay! Misty was so accommodating and kind. They have put so much time and thought into their little cabins, and it absolutely shows. Such a nice, calm and relaxing place - not to mention gorgeous views. The drinking water and fresh wildflowers were a huge plus as well. My fiancé loved the binoculars that were in the eagles nest:)

20/10 Would Recommend
We expected a cute little cabin with beautiful scenery when we booked a weekend at Rhize. We got that and more. My fiancée and I absolutely fell in love with the place the moment we arrived. The scenery was STUNNING. Misty and Ron were so welcoming the moment we got there. They are wonderful, wonderful people. The cabin was cozy and cute. We couldn’t get enough of the wood burning fireplace inside. We made the mistake of not adding pizza making to our itinerary there. DO IT. They looked amazing (we had serious food envy the first night). We DID add the pancake breakfast, and they were honestly the best pancakes we’ve ever had. I can’t recommend this place enough. 20/10.

Special touches for a relaxing retr
We had an amazing stay. Misty and Ron do a wonderful job of adding special touches to make the stay special from a small vase of flowers in the cabin to bringing campers together for wood fired pizza night. We’d absolutely recommend the stay, it’s totally worth it once you get there.

Beautiful, romantic, and fun!
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time! Misty and her husband were wonderful hosts. So friendly and fun. Despite the pouring rain we were able to make pizzas in the pizza oven and chat with other campers. Such a fun group and great vibes all around. The blue jay cabin was very cozy and surprisingly warm at night even as the temps got pretty chilly! I will second others warnings, ideally arrive in a vehicle that is able to handle unpaved and rocky roads! The route up to the campsites is an adventure. We loved our pancake breakfast as well. Definitely worth the price. Overall an amazing experience, we will be back!
