Overview

At an elevation of 9,813 feet, Geneva Park Campground offers cooler temperatures during the hottest of summer months. Along the Guanella Pass Scenic Byway, this campground is near prime spots for wildlife viewing, scenic driving, landscape photography, hiking and accessing roads open to off-highway vehicles.

Natural Features:

The campground sits in a dense stand of lodgepole pine, which limits mountain views. Sites are nicely separated to provide privacy. The Geneva Creek flows past the campground entrance.

Pikes Peak is about 67 miles south and is heralded as the easternmost mountain peak over 14,000 feet in the United States.

Recreation:

Mount Evans Wilderness is directly east of the campground and the Abyss Trailhead, sometimes referred to as the Scott Gomer Trail, is a short drive south of the campground. Burning Bear Trail, just 2 miles south of the campground, is a wonderful trail for hiking and horseback riding.

Facilities:

Geneva park has 26 campsites to accommodate both RV and tent camping. Drinking water, vault toilets, picnic tables and grills are provided. Parking aprons are dirt and the interior road may be rough and bumpy.

Nearby Attractions:

The drive down Highway 126 from Pine Junction affords magnificent views of the valleys below. Pikes Peak can be seen in the distance and other prominent rock formations present themselves throughout the scenic drive.
