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!

Great stay
This place was a wonderful place to stay and get away from hustle and bustle. Beautiful views of Pikes Peak, smell of cedar trees, turkey and deer walked close to us and beautiful night skies. Alex and Mary Anne were wonderful hosts.

Only electrical hookup site.
My husband and I were looking for somewhere to crash for the night after a long race in Pueblo and Mary Anne’s place was just the right spot. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the warm welcome from Mary Anne and her husband. My only regret is not being able to stay longer and grab some of the muffins Marry Anne had offered us.

Camping with a special touch!
If you are an off-the-beaten path kind of camper, this is the place for you! Tucked back in away from the world, this is a peaceful spot with amazing views and a great place to spend a few days. We came with our small travel trailer, parked at the only electric site, and had a beautiful long weekend. Very quiet and relaxing. Mary Anne and Alex are the super nice folks and also wonderful Hipcamp hosts! The homemade lemon poppyseed muffins were a delicious morning treat made with love and care by Mary Anne!
