Cripple Creek, CO

We're heading to CC Colorado in Sept. Starting off in KC area stopping in Oakley, KS for the first night. How bad are the grades from CO Springs to CC?
We found a great Campground just on the edge of town and landed the outside spot for a mountain view.
Not worried we can't do it just curious.

Thanks!

Me too! initially! It's on old gambling town seems pretty cool. I'll have plenty of pics and reviews! We're staying in the park on the NW side of town. Looking directly at MT Pisgah out our door.

My SIL & her DH live in Divide. He says she paved the streets in town with all the quarters she put in the slots there

We're limiting ourselves to 1 day visit to the slots! Now my BIL and SIL are going and staying in the resort hotel. He'll want to live the whole week in the casino! His track record isn't very good either!

I you beat the house you may end up in one of the old gold holes. You'll understand that when you get there. The miners made the hills look like giant prairie dog holes.

To an answer your question about the grades, nothing serious at all. The most you’ll see is from Colorado Springs to Woodland Park with a stretch of 45mph sharp curves.

Thanks Bryan! I did a google Earth run and that's the way it seemed. Appreciate it. Super excited to knock Colorado off the map!

Walking distance to the casinos I guess. There is also the Lost Donkey campground which is a few miles outside of Cripple Creek. I have never stay at either one.

Curtiscapk, the Muller State Park campground has good sites. You must get a reservation and a park pass on line. Most sites have water and electrical, but you have to use their dump site for sewer cleanout. Lots of trees, hiking, etc. Closer to the Springs than the other two.
