Welcome to our campground!
We would like to introduce ourselves to you. Doug and Jen have been married for 20 years and have 2 amazing daughters. We are entrepreneurs and have been self-employed for over 15 years. We have been a camping family from the get-go. Doug was raised camping and shared his joy with Jen immediately. He took her 4-wheeling on their first date and shortly thereafter started camping with friends. We did tent camping and 4-wheeling for many years before our girls were born. When the girls were little, we just did day trips in our 1975 Bronco and camped in the backyard until we found a great pop-up camper that we spent about 5 years camping and traveling in. It was fabulous until the girls got bigger and it was a tight fit for 4 of us. Eventually we graduated to our class C motorhome and Jeep Rubicon that has taken us to and through several states, many National Parks, and over mountains. We love the outdoors! We love to just load up, pick a direction, and drive…finding amazing things to do along the way. That family time has been priceless and has made the best memories.
Owning a campground and sharing this love of the mountains was naturally our next adventure! We can’t wait to see you up at our mountain to enjoy the outdoors with us!
It's a destination, explore!
We will open in May weather permitting
Welcome to Aspen Acres Campground, located 25 min from I-25 alongside of the 103 mile Colorado Frontier Pathway and Scenic Byway. The Byway stretches through the beauty of South Central Colorado and the San Isabel National Forest. We are located three miles above Lake San Isabel, a 40 acre stocked lake tucked in the mountains. Our altitude is 9200 ft, which make summer high temperatures average in the 70's, and nighttime lows dip into the 50's, great for sleeping. Oh, did we mention that you don't have to drive over a mountain pass to get here? Safe travels.
Our R.V. sites are all full hook-ups (30 amp), and stretch around the campground, leaving many options for different types of sites, some farther away tucked up into the mountain, or down closer to our large rec hall and shower house area. Our cabins are also spread across the campground, some nestled privately in the woods. Check out our two very private loft cabins. Besides the rec hall and the Lounge, we have an open pavilion with cooking grills on the campground. Since we border the National Forest, our campfire policy complies with the Forest Service, meaning we allow campfires when they do. We have a shower house and laundry room (for long term visitors, 1 week or more), which we pride ourselves on its cleanliness. A restaurant can be found three miles down the road by the lake.
Bordering the San Isabel National Forest leaves plenty of things open for the adventurous to do. Trails stretch throughout the Forest, leading to many beautiful peaks and mountain valleys. Whether on foot, mountain bike, horse, or motorcycle, the trails offer much for many. You may even see a black bear rambling along, or some of the many other animals that live in the mountains. But then again for those who would rather relax on their vacations, the quiet atmosphere of the mountains and cool breezes make for lawn chair relaxing. And if the weather isn't cooperating, you can relax in our quiet Lounge area and read a book or magazine. We look forward to seeing you!
