Rustic Creek Ranch

32 sites 路 RVs, Tents160 acres 路 Bailey, CO
The 160 acre ranch was homesteaded by my grandfather over 100 years ago. He was an engineer. The plan was to use this property as summer grazing for his cattle. The cows were wintered at the other ranch about 10 miles away, which was homesteaded by my great grandfather. Because my grandfather could survey, he made sure the property lines zigzaged up the valley so the small creek was in the middle to provide water for the animals. He chose well. It is a beautiful, quiet place with elk, deer and wild turkeys. There are tons of wild flowers in the summer. Columbines, the Colorado state flower, wild roses, paintbrushes and lots of wild chokecherries. With nice views of nearby mountains, open pastures, evergreen forests and aspen groves, it looks like it did 100 years ago. Plus, there are a couple of ponds for your dogs to cool off in. Since the first cattle, the ranch has also been home to goats, chickens, horses, and now alpacas and llamas. And of course the Great Pyrenees ranch dogs. I had a house built a few years ago and live on the property full time. The ranch is surrounded by Pike National Forest with the Colorado Trail connecting the property in a number of places. Some of the highest ranked mountain bike trails are nearby. There are lots of places on and off the property to hike, mountain bike and ride your horse. On a clear night you can see thousands of stars and hear coyotes howl. For a drone video of the ranch check out: YouTube's Midsummer 2020 Flyover. Elevation 8,000 feet, Average Summer Temperatures: Days 60-80 f, Nights 45-60 f, Sunshine Average 73-80%, Colorado Trail Segment 3, USGS Maps: Windy Peak & Green Mountain quadrangles. This is the official info. Basically, the weather is usually similar to the Denver area - just 10 degrees cooler. About 8 miles away is the small town of Bailey. It has just about everything you might need: small grocery store, gas, laundry, art gallery, a dollar store, hardware store, camping and sports equipment, brew pub, winery, a few restaurants, potable water station and more.

Glen Isle Resort

20 sites 路 RVs, Tents101 acres 路 Bailey, CO
(If you book with us, please don鈥檛 follow your GPS if it tries to make you turn at the Coney Island hot dog stand. Glen Isle is .5 miles past the hot dog stand.) Due to the ongoing issues with forest fires in our area and insurance issues at this time, we will no longer have open wood-burning fires. Propane fires are permitted if you have a portable campfire ring, please feel free to bring your own. We do have a couple available for rent onsite. For your safety and ours: absolutely no check in/arrival after dark sets in; Around 5:15pm during winter months. 7:30pm summer There are many reasons why you would want to camp at Glen Isle Resort! Glen Isle is located in Bailey, Colorado which is the perfect vacation spot for friends, family, reunions, or a private get away. Glen Isle was originally built for an escape from hectic Denver. Once you cross the bridge into the resort, you鈥檒l understand why it has served as a peaceful getaway for over a century. The Platte River welcomes you and divides the property from Highway 285. If you love to fish, you have a mile of the river to use at your disposal. If hiking is your forte and you desire to explore nature, Glen Isle is surrounded by the National Forest, Lost Creek Wilderness, Payne Gulch Trailhead, the Colorado Trail and many private acres for you to explore. You will find history narrates the Native American鈥檚 story where Glen Isle was once used as an Indian encampment, and numerous trees still stand today that were culturally modified to mark sacred treasures. If you seek tranquility, you will find hummingbirds and chipmunks always seeking an audience to entertain. Starting June 1st, we will offer evening activities, and campers are welcome to come to the lodge, shop in our gift shop. We also have snacks for purchase, and popcorn for our guests to enjoy. (Glorious Glen Isle was unoccupied for six years. We are in the process of renovating hundred year old cabins, and the 8,000 square foot lodge. Our camping areas have a river setting, glorious valley views, and a private setting surrounded by the National Forest. However, there is renovation and construction going on around some areas of the property. Additionally, as you can see from the map and read in a few reviews, we are just on the other side of the beautiful Platte River from Highway 285. About 75% of our guests are not bothered by the busyness of the this highway but others can be more sensitive to the noise. We want Glen-Isle campers to enjoy their experience as much as possible, so if you would like more information, please do not hesitate to ask. Our goal is to share the property with others, and to have the "happiest" campers in Colorado!) Glen Isle Resort was opened in 1901, by five original investors. In 1923, the property was bought by the Baldwin's and in the 1940's it was given to the Baldwin's granddaughter, Barbara and her husband Gordon Tripp. The Tripp family owned and operated the resort until Barbara's death in November 2012. Mary Ruth grew up coming to Glen Isle Resort as a child in the 1970's. Her favorite memories are the chuckwagon dinners, horseback riding, evening dances, movie nights, and the endless activities that never grew old. Mary Ruth grew up, married Greg, and they started bringing their five boys to Glen Isle Resort. Mary Ruth and Greg were both professionals in education, and visited Glen Isle in the summer of 2016 after an Adele concert. They found their beloved Glen Isle was being sold. After much consideration, they found the idea of not pursuing a dream to be more terrifying than looking back and wondering "why" they didn't...so they began the magical journey to purchase, restore, and bring historical Glen Isle back to life.

The best camping near Cherry Creek State Park guide

Overview

About

Situated in Aurora, just outside of Denver, Cherry Creek Park is a popular spot for cycling, hiking, fishing, target practice, swimming, and water sports—plus there's a marina with boat and jet ski rentals. The most unusual park feature is its model airplane flying field, Suhaka Field, with two paved runways. While the park鈥檚 urban location means it gets a lot of day-trippers, it鈥檚 also a fun place to spend the night. The Cherry Creek Campground has a mix of tent and RV camping plus hot showers, laundry facilities, and an amphitheater.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of the 135 campsites through the Colorado Parks and Wildlife online reservation system or over the phone.聽
  2. Reservations can be made up to six months advance. Same-day reservations are also available on the phone or online, but not in person.
  3. Summer weekends fill fast, so book early or keep checking online for cancellations.
  4. Only the Abilene Loop remains open from November through March.聽聽
  5. If you鈥檙e struggling to secure a reservation, there are plenty of alternative options in the area, including lodges and Hipcamps.

When to go

The park is at its busiest in June-August, and can get very crowded, particularly on weekends. May and September are good alternatives, with warm temperatures but fewer people, especially during the weekdays, when local children are in school. November through March is the off season and while one loop of the campground is open, many of the services and facilities are closed. Snow is not uncommon in winter months, so be prepared.

Know before you go

  • The park is located in a suburb of Denver, and there are plenty of spots to pick up food and supplies within a few minutes鈥 drive. Firewood is available for sale onsite.
  • Cherry Creek State Park often reaches capacity on weekends and vehicles without camping reservations will not be allowed to enter if the park is full.
  • Campers must have both a camping reservation and a separate Colorado State Parks Annual Pass or a Daily Pass (for parking). Park passes are available online and onsite.聽聽
  • Dogs are welcome, though they must remain on a leash, except for in the designated off-leash area.
