Description
Jacks Gulch Recreation Area is located about an hour from Fort Collins, Colorado up scenic Poudre Canyon. The campground and surrounding mountains are great for hiking, biking, fishing, and horseback riding, making it a popular option for outdoor enthusiasts. The campground itself is dog-friendly (as long as they are on a leash) and offers stunning views of Mummy Range. 

Located adjacent to Pingree Park Road, Jacks Gulch is nestled in a ponderosa pine forest with spots of aspen and tons of wildflowers certain times of the year. The Columbine Loop of the campground has 27 sites with electrical hookups, as well as 10 walk-in tent sites. The Yarrow Loop boasts 28 non-electricity sites. There are also five equestrian campsites, each with four horse stalls and ample room for a horse trailer. 

All campsites include a tent pad, picnic table, and fire grate. If you bring Fido along, be sure and pack poop bags, as the campground does not provide them. Jacks Gulch is in an idyllic location just off the Poudre River, providing visitors with easy access to a hiking trail that circumnavigates the campground, as well as numerous other nearby trails. 

One of the more popular campgrounds in northern Colorado, each site is surrounded by a forest of trees, giving visitors privacy while still having access to clean bathrooms. Pingree Park is home to a satellite campus of Colorado State University, which is located 48 miles away in picturesque Fort Collins. For dog owners who love getting outside and exploring the beautiful Colorado mountains, Jacks Gulch is an excellent choice. However, campers should be prepared for the unpredictable Colorado weather, including late afternoon thunderstorms that bring heavy rains that soon give way to blue skies.
