Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
My husband and I bought this property in 2010 after selling our beach house in California. We have adapted to mountain life with the change of seasons and so much wildlife here in Colorado. I even had a close encounter with a bear! It was about twelve feet away from me; we looked at one another and I said, "Oh, hello." After several seconds it simply turned around and walked away. I was surprisingly calm and so was the bear. We frequently have deer and elk visiting our property along with squirrels and chipmunks. We especially enjoy the hummingbirds that show up in May. I created a garden with their favorite flowers so they have their own little sanctuary here. We have a seven-year-old chocolate lab names Yogi who loves people and friendly dogs. He loves to go on hikes and swim in lakes.   Conveniently located in south Evergreen near hiking trails, Evergreen Lake, pickle ball and tennis courts and downtown Evergreen with two restaurants within walking distance. There is a view of pine trees and Mt. Evans along with deer and elk stopping by to graze on the property. Your campsite is next to a Zen garden that attracts a variety of birds and butterflies. You have a picnic table and chairs to enjoy the view and sunset. This space accommodates dry camping self-contained vans only. Although you will be camping next to our home we will respect your privacy.

I have used Carol's campsite a number of times now. She is always there to greet me. The site has beautiful views, I feel safe, and it has great access to all the area offers.

The site was nice and level. It was a quick drive to town. The hosts were very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay if you’re in Evergreen or trying to catch a show at red rocks. Carol was a great host!

Carol was very accommodating. We arrived late after a concert at Red Rocks. She was up to assist us when we arrived. Location is beautiful and safe.

Meh
It’s probably just me, but I honestly was disappointed. The hosts were plenty friendly, and this was my first experience on this app. I had mistakenly expected a more typical campground experience. I parked in the driveway of a postage stamp sized lot and I was advised to park so that my double doors opened up to their little zen garden. And frankly, that felt a bit awkward because it was also opened up to the windows of their house. It made me feel observed. If you just need a place to park, it’s fine. I was looking for more. I was not planning on giving a review but I felt harassed to do so. Careful what you ask for.😳
