Tipi Camping at Flatiron 

No matter how you spell it, camping in a Tipi is pretty sweet

Larimer County Natural Resources now has a set of Tipi's for campers to enjoy at Flatiron Reservoir County Park southwest of Loveland. The three sites with Tipis are available for reservations now!

Enjoy an old style camping experience with up to 4 adults or 4 adults and 2 children for $35/night. You can even bring along a tent for mom and dad and let the kids enjoy the tipi. An outdoor campfire will keep the whole crew warm and enjoying s'mores late into the night when a string of electric lights will kick in to illuminate the tipi's interior. Be sure and bring along good sleeping pads or cots to make it a comfy home for the weekend. A unique fun time that the whole family will remember for years to come!  

Horsetooth Mountain Open Space is Online

Stay found on your phone and check out the trailhead webcam

Horsetooth Mountain Open Space is going digital with tools to enhance your experience. In order to help out with the challenge of finding a spot in the Upper Lot at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space users can now check out a web cam feed to check parking availability. Know before you go and pick the best time to get on Horsetooth's most popular trails. 

Once you get there you can stay found on your phone as well! Geo-referencing PDF maps are now available to download from LCNR for use in your map applications. Follow your progress via a map based application on your mobile device at both Horsetooth Mountain and Devil's Backbone Open Spaces. 

Stay tuned for more tech tools to make coming out to play in the Open Spaces even more fun!
