Overview

Camp Dick is the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp that was established in the 1930s. It is located just off the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, on the Middle Saint Vrain Creek.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the banks of the Middle Saint Vrain Creek in a glacial valley surrounded by mixed conifer and aspen forests and an open meadow.

Recreation:

The Middle Saint Vrain Creek is a good fly-fishing stream where anglers cast for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout.

Many trails in the vicinity are open to hiking and biking, including Sourdough and Buchanan Pass trails. The Indian Peaks Wilderness boundary is four miles from the west end of the campground.

Mountain biking is allowed on the first five miles of Buchanan Pass Trail. Bikers can ride a loop from Peaceful Valley or Camp Dick, via Buchanan Pass Trail and Middle Saint Vrain Road, or Coney Cutoff and Coney Creek Roads and Sourdough Trail.

The Middle Saint Vrain and Bunce School roads are popular among off-road vehicle enthusiasts.

Guided horseback riding is available at Peaceful Valley Lodge, which is just over a mile away.

Facilities:

Campsites will accommodate tents and RVs. Sites includes picnic tables and campfire ring with grill. Water spigots, vault toilets, and trash services are provided at the campground. Firewood may be purchased during the peak season. There are no electrical hook-ups, dump stations, or showers. Tents must remain on tent pads.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Allenspark is less than 10 miles north of the campground, and has a restaurant and a grocery store.

Rocky Mountain National Park's main entrance is 25 miles north of the campground, in Estes Park. With lush valleys and craggy peaks reaching elevations higher than 14,000 feet, visitors are provided opportunities for countless breathtaking experiences and adventures.
