Description

GREAT location in the middle (literally, geographic center) of Colorado.
Year round activities, if you can handle the cold & snow in the winter.
We are located near 9700' elevation - you have been warned!
Our postal address is Hartsel, but even that is about 15 miles away.
We are about half-way between Fairplay and Buena Vista, off Trout Creek Pass.

House Rules

This whole area, Park county, Chaffee county, Pike and San Isabel National Forests are under Fire Bans due to extreme fire hazard conditions.
No fires allowed, don't even SMOKE outside!

Access Road Conditions

Dirt road, 2.5 miles off US Hwy 285/24 at Trout Creek Pass
It is county maintained; they grade it, but still has a lot of wash-board!

1/2 mile from National Forest access to Mushroom Gulch and access to the Fourmile OHV area.

Now that I have hosted a couple of visitors, I realized that the best place for guests is a nice flat spot on the back side of my property. However, that area is not as accessible as my front yard. Until I can make some improvements, I need to limit it to smaller (30') RV's. Note that most Class A motor-homes are too wide and too tall to get back there.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Swing wide for narrow entry.
You won't need air conditioning here; we are at approximately 9700' elevation!

I have wifi, but the rv parking area is out-of range. Visitors are welcome to connect, but will need to walk within range.
Cell service is little-to-none. Don't count on it!

Park County is currently under a Stage 2 Fire Ban. Call (719) 836-2494 for current restrictions

Availability

We are retired.
Available anytime you can catch us at home!

GORGEOUS VIEWS!

What a fabulous stop over! Level spot overlooking Colorado mountains. Tim provided electricity & offered water plus WiFi. Verizon service DID work at this location although I took the opportunity to enjoy lovely weather & read a book!

Peaceful spot

Nice folks with a peaceful and beautiful property, big yard to park in. We were able to connect to an extension cord no problem. Tim is fun to chat with but respects your privacy too. Awesome stay for our first BW experience!

Great First Outing.

We had a great time for our first RV adventure. Tim was a great host. The place we parked had a nice mountain view, where the skies were blue and the air cool and breezy. As first time RVers, we had questions that Tim was more than willing to answer. He also provided many tips that we will use during future outings. Tim also took us on a Jeep ride through the mountains and valleys. We thoroughly enjoyed our first outing and am certainly looking for our next adventure.
