The Most Unique Campground In Colorado Is The Magical Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon
Temperatures in Colorado are more sporadic than ever (a la blizzarding one day and 50 degrees and sunny the next), but that is no reason to hide out inside and hibernate until the summer! Despite not knowing what next week’s weather will bring, we highly recommend grabbing your sleeping bag and hightailing it to the Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon, AKA the most magical campground in Colorado.
Located just outside of Denver near Black Hawk is the unforgettable Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon, a family-owned-and-operated campground with special touches around every corner.
Built in 1969, the Base Camp has seen some significant updates in recent years, and now offers everything from comfortable cabins to RV and tent sites.
Since campsites that can accommodate an RV, tent sites, and cabins are not hard to find, you may be wondering what makes the Base Camp stand out from other Colorado campgrounds. The answer is such amenities as an on-site convenience store...
Whether you need a beer, ingredients for s'mores, or general snacks, you can find it all right here!
...Special events on-site and around town...
...And a backdrop that looks to be out of a watercolor painting.
Thanks to its convenient location, the Base Camp also boasts a close proximity to such attractions as nearby casinos, shopping, and the Gilpin County Community Center (pictured), making it the perfect spot for every member of your family!
Rates begin at $30 per night and can be booked by visiting the Base Camp's
website or by calling (303) 582-9979.
