If you’re craving some caving, then spend a night at the Fulford Cave Campground while exploring Fulford Cave, the eighth-largest cave in Colorado.

The campground is perched atop a hill among young aspen and pine trees, sandwiched between a beaver pond and Brush Creek below. Adjacent to the facility is the Fulford Cave Trailhead, and the cave itself is just a .75-mile hike up the lower slopes of 13,382-foot Gold Dust Peak. The campground offers views of Yeoman Park below, and the trailhead provides access to other routes through the Holy Cross Wilderness.

The campground itself is small and has only seven campsites, but it rarely fills up because of its remote location, so space is typically available. Each site is $8.00 per night, comes with a picnic table as well as a fire ring, and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are also vault toilets on the grounds, but no potable water. Although RVs are not recommended on the single-lane, rocky road, one site can accommodate a vehicle up to 25-feet long.

The campground is open from late-May until late-September, weather permitting. Fulford Cave is open annually from April 15 through October 15.
