this campground is so amazing. the views you see from each campsite it breathtaking. and late at night or early in the morning you can drive down the road and see elk. and if you drive up to the top of the mountain just past the campground there is the best spot to see the sunset.

This is a beautiful primitive campground with great views and frequent visits from the local elk population. It is primitive. Note that. It's not a KOA or Holiday Inn campground. but, if you want some space between you and your fellow camper, if you want to wake up on top of the mountain (world) this is the place. It does... More

Wonderful staff, easy checking in and amazing views. We had site 24, overlooking spectacular views. Watched the Elk in the morning not far from the office. Very glad we checked out the camp site, and if you want the total rustic experience with genuinely nice people running it and to feel away from it all, then this is the place... More

We have been going to Mile High for many years now. Always the most relaxing point of the year and a great place to escape the summer heat! Our dogs love the fresh crisp mountain air and the friendly folks we always meet at the campground. The annual Dutch Oven Gathering left me with a full belly, a new pot,... More

Wow what a great place to stay. We went to the Dutch Oven Gathering and all the food was amazing and we won a prize! The only thing they should change is the awful woman the was running the event I heard her several times talking about a young couple that brought their dog and baby to the event. She... More

Beautiful place to stay! Although if you plan on taking your dog, forget taking your dog with you to the gathering. They say they are dog friendly at the campground, but we had never been discriminated against because we brought our dog with us! Our sweet dog is 6 years old super friendly with separation anxiety, therefore we have to... More

We LOVED it!!!! Very peaceful and they were really nice. Loved that elk was walking around the campground. The views was awesome!!! we will be going back. I recommend it to everyone. Though down off the mountain it was 90+ degrees up on the mountain it was 75 degrees and a good breeze. I could sit up there all day.... More
