Revenuer’s Ridge Campground lies along both sides of Wapiti Road in Mueller State Park on the west side of 14,115-foot Pikes Peak. The campground, one of Mueller’s seven camping areas, has 29 campsites (#6-22, #51-54, #67-69, and 81-90) that are mostly pull-through sites for RVs and trailers. Tent campers will enjoy camping at nearby walk-in campgrounds rather than staying at busy Revenuer’s Ridge. The campground has two vault toilets and water taps and each site has a table and fire grate. The Camper Services Building, with restrooms, coin-operated showers, a laundry, and kid’s playground, sits in the middle of the campground. Pets are welcome at the campground, but must be leashed at all times and are not allowed on trails. The campsites fill fast in summer so make reservations between three days and six months in advance.

Pro Tips

  • Mueller State Park is west of Colorado Springs. To reach it from Interstate 25 in the Springs, take Exit 141 onto West Cimarron Street/U.S. 24. Drive west on U.S. 24 for 25 miles to Divide. Turn left on Colorado Highway 67 and drive 3.5 miles to the park entrance on the right. Drive up Wapiti Road to the visitor center and campground. Contact the park for more information.
  • Camping is limited to a single campsite with a maximum of six people. Campsite spaces can have a passenger vehicle and two tents; a vehicle, trailer, and tent; a pickup truck, trailer and tent; an RV or bus and tent; and one extra vehicle or motorcycle can be parked, space permitting. Only 3.2% alcoholic beverages allowed and no marijuana use.
  • This is black bear country, so strict rules must be followed to reduce bear encounters. Food, scented products, and cooking utensils must be stored in vehicles all the time. Don’t bring food or toiletries in tents; don’t sleep in clothes worn while cooking; and dispose of all trash in dumpsters or bear-proof containers. Ask a ranger if you need a storage area for food and they can provide a safe box.
  • Most of Revenuer’s Ridge Campground is open all winter for cold-weather enthusiasts. Sites are available on a first-come first-served basis, with no reservations. The shower house, dump station, and water taps are closed in winter. Mueller is quiet in winter, with lots of activities including hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding, and wildlife watching.
  • Recommended season(s): Year-round.
