I found Hermit Park in the Estes Park visitors guide. We were wanting to see some wildlife so we made an evening drive though. We went back the next morning for a small 3.5 mile hike. Trails are not well marked and after the rangers...More

Camped for 3 nights. Sites are spacious. Some sites are more private than others. Vault toilets are cleaned and restocked daily. Water is available at the entrance to the park which is about 1 mile from the campground. No cell service (Verizon) in the park....More

Just about 5miles east of Estes Park on Hwy 36 is Hermit Park. Day use fee is $6 for 24hrs (so you could always go back next day). Dog allowed on trails ON LEASH. We hiked up the 2mi (one way) trail to Krueger Rocks...More

The camping sites are basic with a place to park and pitch your tent. You can get a good idea of what they look like on the Hermit Park website by clicking on the campsite icons. There are no food storage locations, unless... More
