Camping In Colorado
My love for camping started after I graduated high school and friends introduced me to it. I also tried my hand at backpacking and although I loved being out in the wilderness, I weighed about 85 lbs and carrying a 35 lb pack just didn't work for me. After I was married, I introduced dear hubby to camping and that tradition has continued on with our daughters, their hubbies and their children. In fact, our decisionto move to Colorado, for our entire family, was made around a campfire two years ago. One stipulation my hubby has always had for campsites is that there has to be showers available. O.k. so call us spoiled California campers....the shoe certainly fits! Last year our entire group went camping up the Poudre canyon and it was beautiful; there was only one problem(and it's a big one)~pit toilets, no showers and no sinks in the bathrooms. I thought maybe this was a unusual campsite and started checking into it. At my age, I feel pretty good that we still sleep on the ground but there is only so much one can do without. It would seem that the state campgrounds that I've checked into don't have flush toilets, sinks or showers. My oldest said there may be some private campsites that have these amenities. Last weekend our oldest and her family went on a church camping trip up to Glendo, Wyoming and it is the same way up there. So bloggy friends that live here in Colorado I'm asking you if you know of any campgrounds that have these amenities for one spoiled lady. If we could take a motor home I would but being on a fixed income that is out of the question. My hat is off to all of you that camp in the more rustic settings-you go! I need your help for next year.... any suggestions?
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
