Looking for recommendations for a scenic campground for a large tent in Colorado. Prefer to be in mountains, with shade, multiple activities close, and flush toilets. We need a site that is not a walk-in site. We have checked state parks, and national forests but seem to be running into campgrounds that seem to be out in the open. We want to be under trees!

How about Mueller State Park? I've stayed there. Nice shade.

Lots of large tent sites at Mueller State Park, some in the trees. Most of them are associated with an rv site. They have showers and restrooms, even a laundry room, electric at site, water is readily available, and numerous pit toilets. If you have your family with you, they can have a blast.

Mueller has areas for tents only, as well as RV sites that will take tents. Most are shady with lots of trees. Another option is Golden Gate Canyon State Park, which also has large shady sites and tent-only areas. Both campgrounds are very popular in the summer, so you might want to make reservations in advance through ReserveAmerica.

There are LOTS of great campgrounds along route 14 which follows the Pudre River (just north of Rocky Mountain National Park). Not many of them have flush toilets though. ONE that does is "Mountain View" campground which serves both RVs and Tenters. Can be reserved on Recreation.Gov

Good luck / Skip
