    Campground Activities

    Camp Dick is situated in a glacial valley adjacent to Middle St. Vrain Creek. It was once the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, established in the 1930s. Recreation opportunities exist for hikers, backpackers, horseback riders, mountain bikers, 4x4 and off-highway vehicle users, and anglers. Those intending to overnight camp in the nearby Indian Peaks Wilderness should contact the Boulder Ranger District (303-541-2500) regarding specific regulations that apply. Dogs are allowed in the campground and in the wilderness, but must be on a leash at all times. Camp Dick is normally full for the weekend by early Friday afternoon, so plan to arrive early or consider making a reservation. Peaceful Valley Campground is approximately one mile east of Camp Dick and has 17 sites, 8 of which are reservable

    Campground Amenities

    The biggest shortcoming of this campground is that too many people know about it! OK, some of the sites are too open for me - a tent camper. But most sights have good cover and some are spectacular. Kudos to the camp hosts for keeping things tidy. This is heaven to nature lovers and hikers, but if you want to take convenient day-trips to "civilization," you should look elsewhere. Expect some 4-wheelers during daylight hours.

    What a great place to get away from the heat. Camp Dick is at a much higher elevation than Denver and Boulder, so you wouldn't want to go in the winter.

    We rented a camper from Colorado Camper Rental, and this trip was exactly what we needed.

    We stayed on the South spur June 15-17, 2007. The sites were spotless. Plenty of shade, very large sites. The camp hostess was very cordial and checked often to make sure all was well. Some sites in the campground can be reserved.
