Located only a mile from the Colorado Trail is Timberline Campground. The rustic Timberline Campground features amenities and accommodations that will meet the needs of all campers and their pups.
Timberline offers sites in two loops. In total, there are 30 primitive sites with no hookups starting at $22 per night. All campsites come with a grill, fire ring, and picnic table for campers' convenience. There are vault toilets, but, unfortunately, no drinking water, so you'll have to pack enough water for your stay. Sites can accommodate tents and vehicles, including pop-up campers and RVs. All sites are shaded by pine, spruce, and aspen trees, making for picturesque views in the fall. Timberline Campground sits alongside Hoosier Creek, which is pawfect for fishing. Note that bears do frequent the area, so be mindful of food storage.
Dogs are permitted at Timberline Campground as long as they follow a few simple rules. Keep your pooch on a leash at all times and tidy up any messes they make. You're also asked to never leave your pooch unattended or tied up to trees.
The Colorado Trail is just begging to be explored by you and your pup, offering ruffly 500 miles of dog-friendly hiking that stretches from Denver to Durango. Dogs are permitted on the trail in all areas aside from Waterton Canyon, which is part of the Segment 1 trail. A specific dog-friendly trail has been created which avoids this section. The trail winds through the Rocky Mountains, passing lakes, creeks, and a variety of wildlife. Black bear and mountain lion sightings have been reported, but no negative encounters with wildlife have occurred on the trail thus far.
If exploring the Colorado Trail with your pooch is on your bucket list, then Timberline Campground is the perfect place for you to pitch a tent! This primitive campground offers you an authentic outdoor camping vacation in the woods, with just enough amenities to keep you and your pup comfortable.
