A few miles north of the town of Black Hawk, Colorado you'll find a campground known as Cold Springs within the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forest. This campground is ideal for campers who want to enjoy outdoor activities like off-roading, hiking, and fishing. Your campsite is located at an elevation of more than 9,000 feet, and you'll be surrounded by pine trees in this mountainside oasis. There are 36 sites at the campground, 31 of which are perfect for RV camping and others that are meant for tent camping.
Your dog can come along for your camping expedition to Cold Springs, but they must stay on a leash when they're not in your tent or your RV. Your two-legged children will also have a blast at Cold Springs, and there's a play structure on the campground for them to enjoy. The campground has drinking water for you and Sparky, and each site is equipped with a fire grate, a picnic table, and a tent pad. You can also purchase firewood on-site.
Cold Springs does not have electric, water, or sewer hookups for RVs. Most campsites at Cold Springs are well-shaded, and up to eight people are permitted to stay at each site.
There are all kinds of activities to enjoy within the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forest, so if you're looking to do some hiking, fishing, or off-roading, there are plenty of opportunities to do so within walking distance of the campground. Just seven miles away, you'll also find the Golden Gate Canyon State Park. In this scenic park, there are more than 35 miles of hiking trails to trek, and some allow equestrian use or mountain biking. If you'd like to catch your dinner, every body of water in the park permits fishing.
Be on the lookout for bears during your stay at Cold Springs, and always utilize bear-safe disposal practices to keep yourself and your pup safe during your visit.
