“Place to overnight in winter”

Overall Rating

Really no other place to camp in the area for winter so we were thankful they were open. Just stayed one night passing through. Restrooms were...in need of some love. Well stocked store on site.

“Our Summer 2017 Go-To”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2017

Overall Rating

Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon has enjoyed a couple seasons of new ownership as of 2017. Sparkling clean and very safe-feeling, it's a great jumping-off point for Golden Gate Canyon State Park as well as attractions in Blackhawk, Idaho Springs, and Georgetown.

We've stayed here three times, twice in cabins and once as a family group that combined one 24' TT and one cabin.

After a friendly and efficient check-in that includes directions to your site, you're on your own unless you prefer to be social. By-the-night sites have a little tree cover between them but this is a compact campground. So, although the area generally is quiet, you can hear a little campground buzz from neighbors in the evening hours. (Cabins, fair warning, are very close together. Cooperative parking is required so that you're not putting a foot in your neighbor's fire ring.) Full-timer sites are close-packed without tree cover.

No cell service (with any carrier as of 2017), but they do have campground wireless. Restrooms are dated very but clean. I believe they are scheduled for remodel soon.

A fully-stocked convenience store onsite offers everything from baked beans to fishing tackle, plus a laundry room and liquor store. There's a modest playground and a rec center across the street for swimming.

This is a non-marijuana campground. We've seen local law enforcement doing drive-throughs. I've felt very safe here with two small children.

Trip Report: Visit #1 to BaseCamp / Golden Gate Canyon State Park

“If you ask again whether you can light the fire, my answer will change from ‘maybe’ to ‘no.'” It’s an autopilot response only.  Because of course the campfire lighting, plus s’mores to follow,...
