Never ever again. Worst camp site I have ever stayed at and I have done a lot of tent camping all over the country. First of all the manager was extremely rude.. I was tempted to leave without paying due to her insults. Right after I paid her for the site she started insulting

Mile High is very remote. All of the campsites are high out on a ridge, so the views are amazing straight from your sleeping bag at night. The stars are beyond compare as well. The people who operate the campground are very nice and helpful, bringing us firewood for $5 a

We went October 12 and it was very cold at night. The T1-4 campsites are tiny, not really enough room for even 2 tents. But I think they have the best views. The T2-4 do not let you park your car at the site and the bathrooms are a good 5 min walk. The bathhouse is not heated

Took my family of 4 (two under age seven and two adults) for two nights(Mon and tues) this week. We were one of the only spots taken and it was very quiet and peaceful. Great views. We stayed in #23 which was great for small kids as right near toilets and sinks. Very private

Hello! None of the sites have any hook ups for RV's or trailers. There is not even any electricity at the restrooms. My husband called them outhouses with flush toilets. So the campground is pretty primitive. BUT, it has some beautiful views, if you get the right site. Several of the sites have no views. Ask when you call which ones have the best views that hold RV's. I hope this helps.

I believe we were at spot 11or 12. We were on the other side of the small road/pathway, but you can literally walk 20 steps to see an amazing view if your campsite is not directly on one of those sites. You won't be disappointed; it is breathtaking up there!

What good hiking trails are near here?
Are dogs allowed?
When we visited, one of the "neighbors" next to us had a dog. I would still call in case they have any size/breed restrictions.
