Note: All campgrounds are managed by the US Forest Service. RRMMC has no involvement with camping facilities or regulations. Information provided here is for the convenience of our visitors and may not be up to date with current conditions. We recommend contacting the Forest Service for direct questions regarding camping on public lands.
Camping on the Rampart Range comes in several forms. The developed campgrounds at Indian Creek, Flat Rocks, and Devil’s Head provide restrooms, drinking water, graded sites, as well as trash service. Besides the developed campgrounds, the Rampart provides dozens of developed, dispersed campsites, too.
We also ask that you consider the following:
• Pack it Out. If you are camping in a campsite that is not within the campgrounds with facilities, pack out your trash. There is no trash service at the dispersed campsites or trailheads.
• Use existing campsites. Rather than developing new areas stripped of their vegetation, try to minimize your impact by sticking to sites that have already been disturbed.
• Don’t build new fire rings. Use existing rings and pack out the ashes if you can.
• Camp away from streams. Wet soils & vegetation doesn’t hold up to wear & tear as well as dry ground. Since water is such a rare commodity in Colorado, your help is vital for the health and future of Rampart wildlife.
• Keep a clean camp. Garbage is not only an eye sore; it also attracts unwanted visitors including bears and disease carrying rodents. Bears are notorious for getting into coolers at night. Keep your family safe by locking food in your car.
• Control your pet. It’s not just a courtesy; it’s for their safety, too.
• Be sure that your fire is dead-out. Every year dozens of unattended campfires escape and spread—be sure yours isn’t one of them.

None of the campgrounds provide hookup or dump services.
