Hiking and lodging in the Estes Valley is always fantastic, but can sometimes be tricky when it comes to taking your pet. At Hermit Park, you can leave the stress behind! Not only can you bring your dog along on all your adventures here, but our camping and lodging options are pet-friendly as well! Our unrefined amenities provide you with a chance to unplug from reality. Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and even horseback riding on 1,362 acres of gorgeous, preserved land. Come bask in the glow of a wood-burning fire, treat yourselves to some S'mores, and kick back and star gaze at the beautiful night sky. So, pack a bag for you and your buddy, choose from an array of cabins and campsites, and enjoy the great outdoors at Hermit Park Open Space—managed by Larimer County Department of Natural Resources.
