A Rocky Mountain Glamping Experience! Welcome to Bliss Canyon! Relax in your private canyon overlooking the valley or head up challenging Moose Track trail to Balancing Rock. After your day of adventure or kicking back enjoy a hot shower. Share your revelations of the day around the campfire, roast marshmallows, or relish your favorite beverage or 4:20 treat (outside only please). Kitchen has sink, fresh, potable water, kitchenware—pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc, BBQ with side burner, critter-resistant food safe, bear-proof trash can, and picnic table outside. We provide a convenient propane campfire for safety since our climate is dry and often windy. No candles please. There are easy trails on property along the lush stream (the original riverbed of the Middle Saint Vrain Stream), fishing or swimming in the pond (no lifeguard on duty), or challenging trails into Roosevelt National Forest from the property. (Ask Hiker Dot for guidance.) Several National Forest access points, where you can enjoy peaceful walks away from crowds, are a short drive. Bliss Canyon is a spur off of breathtaking South Saint Vrain Canyon. Stroll on over to the South or Middle for renowned fly fishing. For climbers, there are over 50 climbs in South Saint Vrain Canyon! Rocky Mountain National Park, one of the five Crown Jewels of the National Park Service, is nearby. The closest trailhead in RMNP is 10 miles, the next trailhead at Wild Basin entrance to the park is 13 miles, and the Beaver Meadows entrance (main entrance) is 36 miles. Rocky Mountain National Park has breathtaking drives, easy strolls with interpretive signs, and 360 miles of trails. (Advance reservation required for entry 9:00 am to 3:00 pm for main park, or 5:00 am to 6:00 pm for Bear Lake corridor.) Indian Peaks Wilderness also has several nearby access points and trailheads. Ask for details. Let the world melt away; there is no wifi or cell service. In the event of urgent need, come to our home up the hill and ring the bell. The charming town of Lyons is 20 minutes away with coffee shops, restaurants, bars, library with free wifi, and quaint shops*. Dot and Byron look forward to hosting you in our spectacular Rocky Mountain Paradise. Wir sprechen auch Deutsch!

Premier HipCamp Experience
I’ve stayed at 20+ HipCamps since this app’s inception and I’m still floored by the experience Dot and Byron provided. From the fully stocked kitchen to homey personal touches, the amazing location, local trails, and THE WAGON. Wouldn’t suggest a thing, just book it already :)

The Perfect Spot
Dot and Byron have thought everything for this camping spot. All you really need to bring is clothing and food. It is also in a GREAT location - only a 25 minute drive to Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains! Can't wait to come back again!!

We had a blast! Dot was wonderful and so incredibly helpful advising us on planning our hiking trips based on our experience and interests. We had purchased our day passes to RMNP but had not taken the second step to reserve times entry passes which she went above and beyond to help us secure up at their house. That being said, this is a great place to go and unplug, enjoy nature and family. Internet access is limited which was fine by us! All I cared to do was charge my phone so I could take pictures of our wonderful trip. We are from Texas and we were concerned we would be too cold in the Gypsy cabin at night as temperatures were expected to be in the 30’s at night. We had no problems and slept well and warm through the night!! The fire pit was enjoyable sit around in the evening and recap our experiences of the day. our The kitchen amenities were perfect for our needs. We kept it simple and cooked out 2 of the 4 nights we resided there. On our way to the place, we stopped at the Walmart in Lyons. There is also grocery shopping in Estes Park. The property was beautiful; places to walk, explore and rest by the streams. We would definitely return!!!!! Loved every minute of our trip!!!

Beautifully curated space!
Wow - I loved staying at Dot & Byron's beautifully curated and thoughtful space! I arrived and immediately received a tour of my space as well as instructions for using the gas fireplace, propane heater in the tent, and hot water (lifesavers in the cold October evenings!). Both Dot & Byron were kind enough to share their knowledge about the area - the history, the wildlife, etc. There was plenty of hiking on the property, as well as comfortable amenities like the picnic table and fire pit chairs if you prefer to take it easy. My dogs roamed free and I didn't have to worry about them running into traffic or getting into trouble, and we all left refreshed and tired after our short weekend getaway!

Glamping at its finest!
The Frontier tent was fantastic!! The outdoor kitchen and fire pit everything you could need and then some. We cooked a steak dinner with all the fixings for heavens sake! And if that weren’t enough, the scenery is breath taking. Dot and Byron also provided great advice on things to see in Nederland as well as Rocky Mtn Natl park. Barley, their dog, was an added bonus. We absolutely suggest a visit!!

Legit Glamping Experience
Dot and Byron have set up a lovely spot for you to enjoy the outdoors on their property. Typically the photos on a site like this are not to be trusted, but the Bliss Camp tent setup was awesome, just like the pictures. All of worst bits of camping have been negated by the Very comfortable tent and bed. The outdoor kitchen was awesome, and the hot water was such a nice treat. There are a few bugs, but it’s high altitude, so nothing like down low. Lots and lots of critters abound. If you don’t want to enjoy nature, this place probably isn’t for you 😅. Also, the high altitude makes for drier air, so take that into account. All-in-all this place is glamping at its finest. We hope to go back.

Marvelous glamping site, comfortable as can beautiful. Beautiful and peaceful. My young children and I had a very special time together. For them, playing in the creek and tracking a Moose path were the best, but they had a fantastic time telling stories around the fire, too.

10/10 GREAT STAY
We were greeted by Dot upon arrival who gave us a great tour of the place and what to expect. The stay itself was amazing, everything from the location, the campsite itself, and the St. Vrain trickling down the road.

Beautiful cozy camp
The gypsy wagon was perfect as was the beautiful site and outdoor kitchen and shower. The structures were immaculately clean and the quality and craftsmanship of the woodwork was beautiful and well designed. The bed was very comfortable and solar lights provided ample light and created a cozy atmosphere. The property had plenty of comfortable seating areas spread around the creek and other structures. The host was very accommodating and helpful with vast knowledge of the area. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Beautiful, peaceful, clean, friendly, convenient, and exactly what I was looking for. I'm 8 month pregnant and was craving a night under the stars (but didn't want to sleep on the ground). Dot set me up in the screened in tent which felt like I was sleeping outside, except for I was on a comfortable queen bed, and it was perfect. I enjoyed a sunny afternoon by the creek with a few dips, and a peaceful fireside yoga session. I would 100% return. Thank you so much, Dot and Byron!

Glamping at its finest!
Very beautiful spot. The covered wagons were comfortable and the creek was fun to play around in. Our host thought of everything you would need to make a comfortable stay, including towels for the outdoor shower. Loved the spot and want to come back and rent both wagons for a girls weekend. Thanks!

Great dog friendly camping!
We loved our long weekend at Dot Byron’s. And so did our dogs! The river/swimming hole is a highlight. If you like to hike, ask Dot for her favorite spots. If you like to camp but don’t want to do all the set up and break down of pitching a tent and setting up for cooking, this is definitely the place

Perfect home base for RMNP!
This could not have been a more perfect place to stay during our time in and around RMNP. Dot & Byron we’re very sweet, and Dot went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The property was gorgeous, the tent was cozy, the bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had it all, and the shower was hot! I HIGHLY recommend this place!

Our family had a great time camping at Dot & Bryan’s. The campsite is adorable and tent is very cozy and comfortable . Our kids had a good time riding their balance bikes in the terrain and playing in the creek on property. The location is also great - close to Lyons so good restaurant options . If you don’t want to eat out , their outdoor kitchen was amazing to cook in . Dot and Bryan were communicative and good hosts. Overall, this was a great spot for our weekend getaway .

Peaceful forest getaway
Perfect weekend getaway! Couldn't have been more happy with how the site was set up. The location was perfect, loved the privacy and quiet. Very peaceful with beautiful veiws (trees, flowers, and easy access to take a dip in the stream on a hot afternoon). Dot and Byron were such kind people and had everything we needed (including chairs, dish/hand soap, grill, drinking water, all kitchen supplies, and even a french press!!) Upon arrival Dot greeted us and gave us great hiking recommendations for our time at Rocky mountain national Park. Definitely going to recommend this place to all my friends and hope to return again!!

Perfect stay close to RMNP
My boyfriend and I just returned from 4 nights in the Shimza wagon. It was perfect! The owners have thought of everything you might need. All you need to bring is your clothes. Before our trip, I messaged the owners a couple times with questions and they were quick with responses. We met Amanda when we arrived. She showed us around and provided instructions on how to use all the amenities. This camp is super special. The wagon was cute and just enough space for 2 people. There was solar power to the wagon, so we were able to charge devices. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen area is shared with another wagon. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a meal. Stove, sink with hot water, and grill. Everything is clean. All utensils, dishes and pots/pans are provided and in great shape. There is a bear locker to keep some of your stuff. There is a shared outdoor shower that is amazing. The water is hot. The bathroom is a porta-potty is a bit of a walk down the driveway. The property has a little swimming hole that is fed by the St. Vrain River across the street. The water from the creek falls down to the swimming hole and then down another fall to the creek that you can walk alongside or in if you brought your swim shoes. The property is about 30 minutes from RMNP. There is no wifi or cell coverage at the property but if you need to use wi-fi to get time entry tickets to RMNP, you can walk up to the owner's porch to hop on their wi-fi.

Perfect rest after RMNP hikes
Our family had a wonderful time at the Frontier Tent! We spent 3 nights here while hiking in RMNP and this spot was the perfect place to come back and rest and relax. Everything was spotless and easy to find. Would definitely come back here again if we can! Thanks Dot and Byron!

We had such a lovely visit! It was the perfect spot for my teen daughter and me to spend a few days relaxing in nature and exploring the surrounding areas. Every detail was so thoughtful - from the outdoor kitchen, the warm shower, and the solar-powered lights. The tent was very homey and cozy, and we enjoyed evenings reading by the fire pit. I would definitely come back!

Perfect glamping
Dot and Bryon were very gracious hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us after a major rain storm. The site has everything you need. Staying in the tent is like being a room in a house. Very well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed including hot water. The shower was so nice. We will definitely be back. My daughter has made me promise we can stay again.
