Take a break from the daily grind and get away to Hermit Park for a campout. This open space has cabins, standard campsites, and equestrian facilities. In the traditional lots, you can use a tent or RV, but there are no electrical hookups. Amenities include restrooms, potable water, picnic tables, and a reservable pavilion. Reserve a site at least 24 hours before your planned visit. Camping permits are $20 a day for individual sites, and daily use permits are $6.
Most of the campground is in an area with partial shade. Once you get your tent or camper set up, head out on one of the area trails. For a puptacular hike, check out the Kruger Rock Trail. This four-mile out-and-back path takes you through fields and up a mountainside to the peak. From up here, you'll enjoy panoramic vistas of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. On your way, take in the natural beauty of the wildflower-dotted meadows. Be prepared for some steep sections on your trek. You can also investigate the Limber Pine Trail either on foot or on your bike. The 4.5-mile trek winds through pine and aspen forest and has a few rocky sections. Finish your day roasting marshmallows around the fire grate.
Dogs that are on a ten-foot leash and well-behaved may join you in the park. Supervise your special pal at all times. It's your responsibility to collect and dispose of their waste.
Summer is a furrific time to come to Hermit Park. Enjoy the picturesque setting as you go walking among the fields and woods here. There are 12 cabins available for $80 during peak season and $60 during non-peak times. If you're planning an outing with a large party, the group site is $150. No matter your accommodations, you'll pawsitively love relaxing in the mountains surrounded by wetlands, meadows, and forest.
