Lost Burro Campground, Colorado

by Timothy

Located a few miles from the small town of Cripple Creek in the mountains of Colorado, the Lost Burro Campground is probably the most beautiful RV campground I have been to. The campsites are located on extensive rolling meadows in a pine forest, beneath gorgeous red stone bluffs. Rather than the standard concrete and asphalt, campsites are covered with grass and wildflowers with access roads of rich red Colorado dirt. A small stream meanders through the campground. The setting is simply amazing and makes this campground well worth a visit.

The rustic, sprawling nature of this campground does come with a slight tradeoff in terms of on-site amenities. While all the standard RV needs - dump station, water, and dumpsters - are available at the office or at a few stations throughout the camp, only a few of the individual campsites have full hookups. More have electricity, but the majority have no hookups at all. This slight inconvenience is well worth the campground layout it enables, though. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms and showers are located at the office, and I found them to be clean with plenty of hot water. In the thin 10,000 foot atmosphere, walking the few hundred yards to the showers was surprisingly winding to my lungs, used to being near sea level.

The staff were friendly and efficient, and had supplies, snacks, and ice cream for sale at the office. The rates were very reasonable, making the Lost Burro Campground a great value for a wonderful setting to camp in. Their website is at www.lostburro.com.
