Little Scraggy Camp

21 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents95 acres · Pine, CO
Little Scraggy Camp is located on 95 acres of an historic 160-acre ranch that was homesteaded by our family in the 1890’s, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. This totally off-grid ranch is surrounded by Pike National Forest, yet has easy access from a paved road. We offer several accommodations and glamping sites, as well as sites for moderate sized RVs, travel trailers, truck campers, vans, tents, and hammocks. Additionally, we have sites for small groups (up to 14 people) and large groups (35-200 people). NEW FOR 2024: All campers can take advantage of our Hipcamper golf discounts at Little Scraggy Disc Golf Course. Across the road from Camp is our newly constructed 18 hole course with PDGA regulation baskets, a pro shop with LSDG discs available for purchase and loaner discs available for those wanting to try out disc golf. Potable drinking water is available from onsite 270-gallon water tanks. Portable toilets are only a short walk away from sites. Friendly dogs are welcome to enjoy YOUR campsite off leash, but please clean up after your dog. If your pet has any aggressive tendencies, it must be leashed. The camp has a 4 basket disc golf putting course with loaner discs provided. We also have a cornhole toss game at both the glamping/rv camp area and tent/rv area. We are an ideal basecamp for the casual or dedicated trail enthusiast. The ranch itself has several trails and easy trail loops to explore within and just outside of the ranch’s fence lines, with direct access to the 9.5-mile Little Scraggy Trail and Segment #3 of the Colorado Trail. Just 3.5 miles away is the Little Scraggy Trailhead, where you will find easy access for biking, hiking, or horseback riding on the many other trails of the Buffalo Creek area. Additionally, we have an extensive network of hiking and horse trails that avoid conflicts with mountain bikers. You might prefer rock climbing Little Scraggy or fishing the gold-medal waters of the South Platte River canyon below Cheesman Dam and the waters near Deckers. For a day trip, Wellington Lake is only 30 minutes away for no-wake water sports. Many people enjoy kayaking on the North Fork of the South Platte downstream from nearby Buffalo Creek. This is a working ranch where we raise and train horses and ponies. Our particular interest is in carriage driving, and we offer driving experiences upon request. Our site called Mountain Horse Camp, provides 3 individual porta-panel horse corrals. There is limited cell service.

Rustic Creek Ranch

34 sites · RVs, Tents160 acres · 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 cattle 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 more goats, 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, coffee shops, gas, laundry, a dollar store, hardware store, camping and sports equipment, brew pub, winery, a few restaurants, potable water station and more.

The best camping near Cheyenne Mountain State Park guide

Overview

About

Just outside busy Colorado Springs, Cheyenne Mountain State Park offers 28 miles of hiking and biking trails—many of which are dog or equestrian-friendly—along with a smattering of picnic areas, a campground, and a nearby archery range. The campground here is divided into distinct loops, many of which—including Gobbler Grove, Raptor Glen, and Swift Puma Heights offer  full hook-up sites with water, sewer, and electric. For something quieter, the Meadow Walk-In Loop offers four tucked-away sites with picnic benches.  There's also a camper services building with coin-operated showers, a laundry room, an activity room, and an adjacent playground.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of the campground’s 61 tent and RV sites through the Colorado Parks and Wildlife online reservation system or over the phone.
  2. Reservations can be made up to six months in advance. Same-day reservations are also available, but not in person.
  3. Only one camping unit is allowed per site, so multiple tents require multiple reservations.
  4. There are plenty of alternatives for camping in the area, including RV sites, private campgrounds, and Hipcamps, if the Cheyenne Mountain campground is full.

When to go

The most popular time to visit Cheyenne Mountain State Park is between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when the weather is at its warmest. However, the park can get crowded this time of year, particularly on weekends, and the risk of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms is at its highest in July and August. September tends to be drier here, with fewer crowds once local kids are back in school. Most campsites and facilities are closed during the winter months (mid-October through mid-April).

Know before you go

  • Cheyenne Mountain State Park is situated just west of Fountain, Colorado, and about a 15-minute drive from Colorado Springs. Both areas offer plenty of options for picking up supplies and groceries.
  • All campers are required to have both a camping reservation and a separate Colorado State Parks Annual Pass or a Daily Pass.
  • Food and cookware must be stored in bear-proof containers or in your vehicle.
  • Dogs are welcome at all of the campsites as long as they are kept on a six-foot leash. Pets are also allowed on select trails, but never in the backcountry areas.
