A Rocky Mountain Glamping Experience! *** Bliss Camp awarded Runner-Up for Best Glamping in Colorado for 2023 and 2024 *** We are excited to announce that Spring has at last arrived with Summer moments occurring with warmth and lots of clear skies. Wildflowers are going off at lower elevations and some above. With all of the late Sprin g moisture this shoule become a spectacular Wild Flower year! Additionally, with a new Starlink booster we mow have internet at all camps. Welcome to Bliss Canyon! Relax stream side in your private camp overlooking lush nature and towering rock outcroppings. Stroll along a rushing stream 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 special treat as you unwind. The open air, covered Kitchens have sinks, fresh, potable hot water, kitchenware, gas stove —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 or open flames 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, picturesque 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! Dark Skies, if you like to watch the stars and meteor showers Bliss Canyon is blessed with dark skies with little light from the plains. Bring you telescopes and explore the Universe. 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 Dot for details. Spring and Summer, 2023 has supplied tremendous rainfall providing amazing wildflowers all over Bliss Canyon and way beyond. Fall Colors are forecasted to be over the top this year starting in September to late October. This years moisture should produce colors like we rarely see. Bliss Canyon explodes with color and is a great base camp for Aspen viewing along Peak to Peak Highway, Rocky Mountain National Park and all the surrounding areas. The famous Fall Elk Rut starts the beginning of September. According to Byron, the Elf Rut is one of the best National Geographic Moments on the Planet! This is a must experience event! We are located near Rocky Mountain National Park which typically provides the best opportunities to view the Rut, as well as other areas near the Park. During the Fall we provide "Little Buddy" propane heaters for the Gypsy Wagons and the Frontier Tent to help you warm up during cold evenings. Let the world melt away; there is no wifi or cell service, (Unless you really want it! Starlink signal now reaches each camp.) the world will survive without your input. In the event of urgent need, come to our home up the hill and ring the bell and we can get you connected. The charming town of Lyons is 20 minutes away with coffee shops, restaurants, bars, lots of great live music, library with free wifi, and quaint shops*. Also, Spirit Hound Distillery received the award for the #1, Best Whiskey in the World in 2022, hmmm, it might be worth a tasting! Dot and Byron look forward to hosting you in our spectacular Rocky Mountain Paradise. Wir sprechen auch Deutsch!

Beyond my expectations! Amazing !
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience! Dot and Byron were so welcoming and nice 😊 and it was great meeting and talking with them. The grounds are huge and gorgeous . It was my first time glamping and I wish we stayed longer. The bed is so comfortable and nothing beats laying in bed with the fresh air coming in and the sounds of nature. Sitting in the Adirondack chairs on top of the rocks was so relaxing, and the shower felt amazing. It is only 25 min into town and the drive along the mountain is gorgeous . I would highly recommend staying here! 5 stars all around 🤩We are already talking about going back.❤️

Cozy "home" in the mountains
This glamping setup was an amazing, cozy space near Rocky Mountain National Park trails. The bed was comfortable, the tent was spacious, and the kitchenette area was very useful for making meals. We also enjoyed exploring the nature on the property. Dot was very friendly and showed us how everything on the campground worked upon arrival. We would definitely stay again!

Glamping with Toddler
It was an adorable little site with plenty to do on their property. They had hiking trails, games such as Powerball and axe throwing. They had chairs out in this rock for stargazing. The creek was very whimsical. The bed was super comfortable we thought and we stayed perfectly warm and there was room for our pack and play for our toddler. It wasn't far from Rocky Mountain National Park either and we got to sleep to the sound of the raging river. My only complaint was how close it was to the road. If only there was a sign, "please drive quietly, people trying to disconnect" on the road haha. It did lighten up at night thankfully. Byron was super friendly. Our toddler loved exploring the property. Bring deet there were tons of mosquitoes and that botanical stuff just doesn't work!
