Easy, scenic hikes reasonably close to Denver. There are a number of different trails that are rated according to their difficulty.

We were told by the information booth in Nederland that there were absolutely no campgrounds with hot showers anywhere near. Since we had driven all night from Ohio, hot showers were important to us. Our first night in the area was spent at a hotel because of this. A local informed us of this state park with showers/ We drove... More

This state park is just a short drive from Golden, or Boulder but it feels like you are way up in the mountains. A great park to drive through for pretty views and breathe in the fresh pine tree smell. There are also many trails for hiking of all levels. Our dog had a great time navigating the trails and...

We were here for a wedding reception. The family rented the "barns" and there was lots of seating, very clean, quiet and safe. What a great place to gather...

My husband and I finally took our two daughters for a drive through Golden Gate Canyon State Park a couple weeks ago. We live so close yet had never ventured in. This place is beautiful! We didn't actually even spend time hiking around too much as this was more a "scouting" visit. We are definitely going to make several trips... More

Golden Gate Canyon State Park is a real jewel for camping and hiking. Only about an hour's drive from Denver and just gorgeous. There are 2 campgrounds, one for tents only and one for RVs, camper trailers, etc. We took our camper trailer up there and had a great stay. The campground is well laid out so you are not... More

We did our first spring/winter cabin camping trip this year over spring break but we have cabin camped here every year for several years. Love the location quick and easy to get to, not a great place to "feel away" from it all as the cabins are in the campgrounds which are massive over the summer. There have been years... More

Lots of wildlife. Friendly staff. Close to Denver lots of fresh air, cooler temperatures, nice campgrounds and plenty of picnic locations. Mountain Base Road and Panorama Point are must thing to drive and check out the view

This park is beautiful! It is a bit of a drive to the nearest town....but just a few miles away is a cute little place to eat call "Last Shot". Food was excellent and perfect for a night away from cooking at our campsite. Loop A or B are great for rv's and popups. Enjoy the cool weather for it... More
