Campground Description

Campground Description


The Aspen Meadows Campground in Colorado's Golden Gate Canyon State Park is a hidden gem nestled in the backcountry of the park.

Located only 30 miles from Denver, Golden Gate Canyon State Park is characterized by its rocky peaks, aspen-drenched forests, abundant wildlife, and plentiful activities. The Aspen Meadows Campground features 35 tent-only camping sites with amenities like fire rings, tables, tent pads, water pumps, and unisex toilets. Two of the sites are even designed to accommodate horses, but you will have to build your own stall. Camping is permitted anytime from May 1 to mid-October. Fall is a wonderful time to visit, when the entire campground is surrounded by groves of aspens in mid-change, creating a wonderfully colorful camping experience. Yurts, cabins, and guesthouses are also available at nearby Reverend Ridge Campground, though these book quickly, so advanced reservations are recommended.
