Escape to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with Fido by your side. Buffalo Campground is located just an hour out of Denver and provides visitors with access to the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area, home of the creek from which is named. This beautiful section of nature is set in the Front Range of the mountains.
Once you get here, you will be met with 36 family-sized sites, all costing $22 per night. Keep in mind that some of the lots are not large enough to accommodate RVs or trailers, so double-check the size you need before you book. No water is provided at this camping facility, meaning you'll have to bring all of the drinking water that your party -- including your pupper -- will need for the duration of your trip. Each campsite comes with a fire ring and a picnic table, and the area asks that you buy firewood from around the campground to avoid spreading tree-killing insects.
Visitors to Buffalo Campground often have their eyes set on Buffalo Creek, which happens to be an excellent spot for trout fishing. Over 40 miles of trails in this recreation area mean that you and your pooch will have ample ground to cover -- though watch for posted signs prohibiting dogs from certain paths. If you're into mountain biking, be sure to arrange some time to take to the woods on wheels, as this forest is very popular amongst cyclists.
Four-legged patrons are welcome at this campground as long as they stay on-leash throughout their visit. Many bears live in this forest, so you'll want to prevent your doggo from taking off into the woods, and scooping all pet wastes then properly disposing of it is imperative to keep these large predators off of your site. Also, remember to store all food and toiletries hidden in your vehicle during your stay.
For those that want to experience the Rocky Mountains for themselves, Buffalo Campground is a great place to "ruff" it in the woods!
