We chose the Hideout because it was close to Glenwood Springs, and accessible by bike on the Rio Grande Trail for quick rides into town. Turned out to be a lovely little spot to camp, with a nice stream and lots of huge old trees for shade. The owner was very friendly and helpful both on the phone when we were making our reservation and when we were staying there. There are also cabins for rent as well as RV sites. The tent sites are shady, good sized, and nice and level. They have picnic tables. Our popup camper fit nicely. Some of the tent sites are right down next to a little stream. Right across the road from the campground is a store, gas station, and a yummy Japanese restaurant where we watched World Cup games on the big screen.
There is a trail down to the Roaring Fork river for walks, and a bridge across the river that gets you to the Rio Grande Trail that you can take into town. There is also a close bus stop to take you to town as well.
All in all a great place to camp for a family vacation to Glenwood!
