About Us

Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon is a family owned campground located between Black Hawk and Golden, Colorado.   The park was originally built in 1969.

We are the third owners of this park and began our journey on May 1, 2014.  When we acquired the property, it was in need of some major TLC.  We immediately began making improvements.  The store was gutted and remodeled within the first three weeks of business.  We have expanded grocery services.  The liquor store used to be in an old shed outside the main building.  During the main building remodel, we were able to move Pickle Liquors inside. The laundry room was gutted, moved and expanded. A sink was installed so guests have a place to wash their dishes.  We have added gravel to the sites and the roads were resurfaced with recycled asphalt.  The old, non-operational swimming pool was removed and in the summer of 2017 a pavilion was built for your enjoyment. Horseshoe pits were installed on the property.  In the fall of 2017, we were finally able to bring gas services back for your convenience.  We now sell unleaded and diesel.

As we continue to make improvements, please understand that this is an old park and the sites may not be as spacious or level as you might find in a newly built park.  Keep checking back for updated information about us and follow us on Facebook!
