Great close to Denver camping, the view from Panorama point is one of the best no hike views around. Mountain bike Lion clockwise, run it counter clockwise.

beautiful area, lots of hiking trails, great area to see fall colors with lots of aspen trees. very close to downtown golden, where there is lots to do. local area is full of interesting things to do, old mines, casinos close by. Very close to the epicenter of gold mining in the 1800's so there is alot to see and do.

The weather was cold and windy when we visited the park while on a drive around Colorado to see fall colors .. however, it was absolutely beautiful.
The welcome center is full of things to explore and the fish pond was a hit with my kids. We drove around the perimeter on Mountain Base Road and stumbled upon one of the most beautiful overlooks we've found so far.

Lots of miles of hiking trails, both easy and intermediate. A nice visitor center that features both nature and history. And not far from a very fun town in Golden, which features four craft breweries and several good restaurants.

We were in G.G.C.S.P just a week ago. We were greeted by a volunteer at the Reverend's Ridge Visitor Center who was very knowledgeable about the area; what to see, where to go, the best times to go there, etc. We drove 1 day to Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. This is quite a tiresome drive as you are going along mountain roads, so may not be the best place to use as a base to the National park. The campground was only 1/4-1/3 full during the week. Weekends get very full. There are nice hiking trails-challenging for those of us who don't live at those elevations! Spacious sites, tent pads, bathroom/shower/dish-washing/laundry building. Showers are $1.00, in quarters, for 4 min.
