Area Attractions

Wildlife: It’s not every day that you can look a few feet away and see wildlife up close and personal.  On any given day, you might be delighted by a moose, deer or elk sighting.   The delightful buzz of humming birds can be heard frequently throughout the grounds.

Gilpin County Community Center: The Gilpin County Community Center is across the street and up the road a short distance from the campground.  The center is home to a swimming pool with a water slide and other fun water features.  This is a great option for family fun during the middle of the day.

Casinos:  Our campground is located only a few minutes from the casinos of Black Hawk and Central City.  This is a great option for adult entertainment.

Peak to Peak Scenic Byway:  Do you ride?  The Peak to Peak Highway showcases some of the most beautiful scenery in Colorado.  Take a trip over to Estes Park and back.  You will not be disappointed.

Baseball/Softball Fields:Pete Gones Memorial Park is right next to our campground.  Weber Field and Elk Field always have local baseball, softball and soccer games for you to enjoy watching for free.  Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon is a proud sponsor of Little League!


Golden Gate Canyon State Park: If you are looking for a place to go fishing or hiking, the State Park is just three miles from Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon.  Take your family out for the day and enjoy all the park has to offer.  Panorama Point offers an up close and personal, breathtaking view of the continental divide.  Hunting, picnicking and mountain bike riding are other activities the State Park has to offer.
