Larimer County Natural Resources Department wants to get the word out to visitors about these new and improved facilities and amenities for their use!
Campground Remodel at Hermit Park Open Space, Hermit’s Hollow Campground:
A complete campground renovation last fall and this spring included reworking of all campsites and expanding the number of campsites from 28 to 42. It is a really nice campground! New, walk-in sites offer views of Longs Peak, privacy, and cool rock outcroppings. Reworked roads improved the drainage and steep grades that were a limitation prior to construction. The installation of four, new vault toilets allowed portolets to be eliminated. All new campsites are available for reservations.
Reservable Group Pavilions
: Six Group Pavilions were added to the reservation system, and can be reserved 730 days to 3 days in advance! Located at Horsetooth Reservoir South Bay & Sunrise, Lions’ Open Space in Laporte, Hermit Park Open Space, Carter Lake South Shore, Flatiron Reservoir, these are great places and reasonably priced for weddings, family reunions, company picnics, any group event. Pavilions can hold from 25 to 250 people depending on the site, and offer a covered pavilion, BBQ grills, and picnic tables. Many have electricity and are within close proximity to reservoirs, hiking trails, and have beautiful views.
