Boulder Colorado is a bustling tourist destination known for its beautiful parks and thriving arts scene. Another thing it is known for is expensive lodging options. Don't fall for the tourist traps -- set up camp at Camp Dick, an affordable campground that is just a stone's throw away from the big city.
Camp Dick accommodates both RV and tent campers, though water and electrical hookups are not currently available. The rates for standard sites is $21 per night, and double sites are $42 per night, which is substantially cheaper than other lodging options in nearby Boulder. Good news for Fido: the campground is also pet-friendly too! Make sure to never leave your pet unsupervised and always store kibble in a bear-resistant food box.
The campground features drinking water, vault toilets, trash pickup, picnic tables, and campfire rings. Beautiful evergreen trees keep tent sites shaded during the summer and offer some privacy for guests during their stay. Firewood will need to be gathered nearby and burned on-site; this practice helps eliminate the spread of diseases and pests that are detrimental to the woodlands.
The campground is nestled near the banks of Middle Saint Vrain Creek, which is a favorite spot for snagging local trout. There are also several hiking and biking trails within walking distance of the facility. Nearby Bunce School Road is a great place to ride ATVs or dirt bikes -- that is, if you aren't afraid to get muddy!
Visitors keen on venturing out will be glad to know that Boulder is just a 20-minute drive away. The big city has loads of activities to keep you busy, such as national parks, museums, art galleries, shopping, fine dining options, and even a planetarium!
There is no better place in Colorado for a wallet-friendly vacation than Camp Dick. Plan your trip today -- you deserve it!
