Only electrical hookup site.
Beauty, quiet, and stars!
I choose Hipcamp over State Parks because I like to have a remote and quiet place to camp. Beautiful views, access to great hiking trails, quiet, and a dark sky full of stars are also on my hope to have list. The Hillfort provided all of it! I had a shaded secluded camping spot with electrical hookup and surrounded by the beautiful Wet Mountains. My two dogs were very welcome and loved exploring the property every morning. Just two miles away is access to the Newlin Creek trailhead and the San Isabel National Forest as well as other hiking trails near by. Mary Anne and Alex were great hosts and loved sharing the history of their beautiful property (plus Mary Anne’s muffins are amazing). I will definitely be booking more trips to the Hillfort!

A Wonderful Stay At The Hillfort!
Let me start by saying that this was our first HipCamp and we think we may have hit the pinnacle on our first try as this place is so beautiful! The road that you need to travel in on is a little rough, even though it was paved most of the way, however, MaryAnne suggested for us to go slow and that turned out to be great advice. In the end, we had no issues getting our 28' 5th wheel trailer to their property. MaryAnne & Alex greated us upon arrival and drove us out to select our site. There are 5 sites total all spaced nicely. The site we chose was site #2 which is a little bigger and was the best for accommodating our camper. They had just mowed all the sites and paths on the property and the views of the San Isabel mountains are amazing from any site you decide to stay at. Alex & MaryAnne were also fun to converse with and were very helpful in recommending things to see in the area. There is actually a beautiful little trail just down the road from the property called the Newlin Creek trail at the Florence Mountain Park that runs up the mountain along the creek. Another incredible must see in the area is Bishop Castle which is a 160' tall castle that was built by one man (Jim Bishop) over a period of 60 years. The nearby small town of Florence has quite a few restaurants and other conveniences. And of course another big attraction in the area is The Royal Gorge Bridge & park that is just north of Canon City. Enjoy!
